Sad news - Earl Weaver
Posted 19 January 2013 - 05:12 PM
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."

" 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)

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 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.
