RIP Earl Weaver
On the day that the Orioles are holding their annual FanFest, news has spread through the Baltimore Convention Center that Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver passed away last night. He was 82.

Weaver died while on a cruise ship, according to people close to the Orioles organization.

Weaver managed the Orioles from 1968-82, and again from 1985-86. He won four American League pennants and one World Series, and compiled a 1,480-1,060 record.

The Orioles honored Weaver with a statue unveiling on June 30 in the former picnic area beyond the bullpens at Camden Yards. He was invited each spring training to address the players and coaches.

Weaver lived in Pembroke Pines, Fla. with his wife, Marianna.

I'll pass along more information as it becomes available here at the Convention Center. A banner with Weaver's No. 4 is hanging above the main stage, and his jersey is displayed on the left side.

One of the best will be missed.

One thing about Earl - they say keeping all your feelings bottled up inside is bad for you, that old bastard should have lived to be 130...
