RIP: Earl Weaver

Hall of Fame manager, Earl Weaver, passed away today at age 82. He will always be remembered as the greatest manager in the history of the Orioles franchise, and arguably one of the greatest in MLB History.

I went to my first O's game in 1968, I don't recall whether Earl had taken the managerial reigns then or not. But, I did him manage plenty of times from 1969 through 1982.

Apparently, Earl passed away on a baseball fantasy cruise. More info here.

He will be missed.
