Earl Weaver, former Orioles manager, dies at 82

LINK

By Bart Barnes and Matt Schudel, Saturday, January 19, 10:52 AM

A scourge to umpires, goad to his players and a delight to fans, Earl Weaver was among the winningest managers in the history of major-league baseball. In his 17 years as chief helmsman of the Baltimore Orioles, his teams won 1,480 games, four American League championships and the 1970 World Series.

Mr. Weaver died Jan. 18 while on a cruise, the team announced. He was of 82. The cause and other details of his death were not immediately known.

I have missed Weaver since he left coaching... what a fire cracker... what an entertaining entity... those who never saw him work missed something special.

This really sucks. One of Stan's grandsons and I were best friends growing up. He was a great guy as well as a great player.
