"A Celebration of Earl" moved to 6:00 p.m. on April 20


In an effort to allow more fans to honor EARL WEAVER, the greatest manager in the history of the franchise, the Orioles have announced that "A Celebration of Earl" will now begin at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 20 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The memorial was previously scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m.

"A Celebration of Earl" will include a video tribute and a collection of notable guest speakers, including JIM PALMER, BROOKS ROBINSON, FRANK ROBINSON, BUCK SHOWALTER, National Baseball Hall of Fame President JEFF IDELSON and Earl's son, MIKE WEAVER.

One of six Orioles Legends to receive his own larger-than-life bronze sculpture at the ballpark last season, Weaver passed away in January at the age of 82. The Orioles are wearing a patch on their right uniform sleeve throughout the season in honor of the legendary manager. Fans are encouraged to visit www.orioles.com/4earl to share their memories of Weaver.
