Hall of Fame Baltimore Orioles manager Earl Weaver passed away last night at the age of 82. He had five 100 win seasons and a World Series trophies to his credit. Mets fans will remember that he was in the opposing dugout for the 1969 World Series.

Here’s a link to the Washington Post’s obituary, and a selection of quotes from and about Earl Weaver from the Baseball Almanac.

  1. I remember him managing the Orioles in 1985_ that about when I first started following baseball. I believe he was thrown out of a game before it even started.

    Only Cox and McGraw have more ejections. He provided plently of highlights for the bloopers reel. May he RIP.

    I wonder if he and Billy Martin are going at it now.

  2. He was one of the last of the old-school managers from a long line that probably began with John McGraw. May he rest in peace.
