  • Hall of Famer Earl Weaver passes away

    I know there is a thread for him in the Current Events forum, but it doesn't really seem right not to mention the passing of a Hall of Famer in the Hall of Fame Talk forum.

    The official news source of Major League Baseball including previews, recaps, trades, rumors, press releases and more.

    He was one of the best managers of the 1970s.

    He was definitely a HOF-caliber manager. He kept Baltimore in contention during years when they ran on a shoestring budget vis a vis the Yankees and Red Sox.
    "I do not care if half the league strikes. Those who do it will encounter quick retribution. All will be suspended and I don't care if it wrecks the National League for five years. This is the United States of America and one citizen has as much right to play as another. The National League will go down the line with Robinson whatever the consequences. You will find if you go through with your intention that you have been guilty of complete madness."

    NL President Ford Frick, 1947

      I wrote kind of a half obituary half homage to Earl Weaver Baseball (the game) here:
