Commissioner’s Statement regarding Earl Weaver

|

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement regarding the passing of Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver at the age of 82:

“Earl Weaver was a brilliant baseball man, a true tactician in the dugout and one of the key figures in the rich history of the Baltimore Orioles, the Club he led to four American League pennants and the 1970 World Series Championship.  Having known Earl throughout my entire career in the game, I have many fond memories of the Orioles and the Brewers squaring off as American League East rivals.  Earl’s managerial style proved visionary, as many people in the game adopted his strategy and techniques years later.   

“Earl was well known for being one of the game’s most colorful characters with a memorable wit, but he was also amongst its most loyal.  On behalf of Major League Baseball, I send my deepest condolences to his wife, Marianne, their family and all Orioles fans.”
