The Baltimore Crew was a faction of the Gambino crime family operating in the port city of Baltimore, Maryland from the 1920s until the 1990s. It was originally an independent organization until Vincent Mangano installed Louis Morici as the reigning capo over the area. Throughout most of its existence it has been headed by the Corbi brothers. Vit, Pasquale, and Frank; respectively.
In the spring of 1923, Patsy Corbi was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Frank Naples; a local barber.,
In 1966, Lou Morici stepped down from the role of capo due to ill health. During this time, the crew was put under the management of the then-capo, Joseph N. Gallo. Frank Corbi assumed the position of acting leader of the Baltimore operation; reporting directly to Gallo. Eventually, Corbi was promoted to official captain of the outfit.
