Earl Weaver has died during a cruise. I haven't followed the Orioles in years, but I was a huge fan while Earl was manager.
Very sad news. :(

"No, I don't hear anything."

"You would if it were playing."

" We weren't supposed to have a winning season, but we do. We

 

weren't supposed to advance to the playoffs, but we did. We're not

 

supposed to be here, but we are." Grant Taylor " Facing the

 

Giants"   (reminds me of us last year and maybe this year as well)

An excellent article on Earl Weaver. For those who never got the chance to witness his brilliance, this article will shed light on his legendary and iconic status and what was the "Oriole Way." He was a "one and only" and he was ours. The Earl of Baltimore will be very much missed but never forgotten.

Earl Weaver: Irascible and brilliant

Legendary Orioles manager was the smartest baseball man I've ever met

Earl: always ahead of the game, never missed a trick, brilliant, irascible, indomitable, hilarious. He was Mickey Rooney in a baseball uniform. That day in the stands in Sarasota, it was like it was 1979, the first time that I ever met him, only this time, I was sitting next to him as he dissected the game. In 33 years of covering baseball, no one has taught me more about the game than Earl. My most cherished days as a writer were the days before a game, sitting on the Orioles bench, listening to, and watching, Earl.

I loved that man. I will never forget his famous line, "You're only here for one specific damn reason!"

I am so glad that major league baseball put that man in the Hall of Fame!

Tough losses this season. First Art in September and now Earl in January.

RIP Earl!
