Earl Weaver has passed away

R.I.P. You was one hell of a manager.

Enjoyed watching the O's while you were there.

Used to love it when he chased the umpires around. One hell of a manager.

"Full Pack" Stanhouse.
Weaver said he smoked a half pack of cigarettes during a game...Except when this guy came in to close out a game.

Although an effective closer, Stanhouse had a reputation of walking batters he was not willing to face. Frequently his tactics would lead to dangerous situations in close games with multiple base-runners, and send the chain-smoking Weaver pacing back and forth in the dugout in agony. This resulted in Weaver nicknaming Stanhouse Fullpack, referring to the number of cigarettes consumed while watching him pitch.

still remember weaver turning his hat around so he could get closer to the umps face during those hilarious arguments....and a terrific manager too.




have you ever felt like the world is a tuxedo and you're a pair of brown shoes?
