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.

I've always liked Earl. Jim Palmer once said about him: "The only thing Earl Weaver knows about pitching is, he couldn't hit it."

RIP Earl. Here's a great quote:
"You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the damn plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all."

I was very saddened when I heard this. One of my good friends is his grandson, he's pretty torn up about it as they were quite close.

Oh, damn, I just saw this. Shit. I remember thinking, when the Orioles were planning the statues for all the HOF'ers, that they'd better not fart around and get it done before one of them was gone. I'm gonna miss that little rooster.

He didn't wait for the events of the game to bring him to full boil. He was there all the time.

He had some very funny stories about some of the scrapes he got into with opponents and with hecklers. Great manager and good for baseball.

Yeah, I think about that quote a lot when watching basketball and football.

I think the ump called a balk. They started early, too.

If you look at the scoreboard you'll also see former Royal Al Cowens is batting.
