Andrew Freedman’s zodiac sign is Virgo. According to astrologers, Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are often tender, their heart might be closed for the outer world. This is a sign often misunderstood, not because they lack the ability to express, but because they won’t accept their feelings as valid, true, or even relevant when opposed to reason. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling they are experiencing everything for the first time.
Andrew Freedman was born in the Year of the Monkey. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Monkey thrive on having fun. They’re energetic, upbeat, and good at listening but lack self-control. They like being active and stimulated and enjoy pleasing self before pleasing others.

This late 19th and early 20th-century business executive is best remembered for his ownership (from 1895-1902) of the New York Giants baseball team. He also headed such transportation businesses as the Wright Company (aviation) and the Interborough Rapid Transit Company (subway systems).
In the early 1890s, he assumed control of the Manhattan Athletic Club. Several years later, he purchased the New York Giants' controlling interest for a sum of just over fifty thousand dollars.
During his time as owner of the New York Giants, he frequently feuded with players. Pitcher Amos Rusie even refused to play for an entire season due to an ongoing conflict with Freedman.
After his death, his four-million-dollar Bronx estate (worth over ninety million dollars in modern currency) was designated a New York City Landmark.
In 1902, he purchased a major share of the Baltimore Orioles, a baseball team that, at the time, included left fielder Joe Kelley among its ranks.
