From Cheryl Rogers And huge fan Willie Pertry
As a young 11 year old in ruaol NC in 1950, we followed the Winston Sales Cardinals in their pennant winning year. While listening on the radio,the anouncer would often remind us the whistleing we heard was coming fron 2B - Earl Weaver. Years later I took the championship team picture I had saved from the Winston Salem paper & John Lowenstein assisted in getting Earl to sign it. I traasure it today - he was one of my alltime favorites, I also love tomatoes. My heart goes out to the family.
You will be forever in our hearts,Earl!You gave my 2 sons great memories that will never be forgotten!ORIOLES
My childhood hero. Thank you for wonderful memories.
A Minnesota Twins fan remembers your antics with the umpires. Always loved it!! RIP and God Bless.
Psalms 90:10 talks about those living to be eighty years old or older as having special mightiness. That can certainly be said of Mr. Earl Weaver. I am truly sorrow for the loss that his family and friends must be feeling at this time.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. With deepest sympathy!
Sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the refuge of God at this time. Psalm 46:1
The joy of following and rooting for the Orioles and Earl in 1970 is still fresh in my mind !
I was 10 back then !! Thank You Earl and all the O's of my
childhood !! You were delightful!! Never to be surpassed or forgotten !!!!
My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Earl Weaver was the BEST Manager the Orioles ever had. Thank you for the wonderful memories.RIP
My heart goes out to Mrs. Weaver, his children and Earl's entire family.
I grew up in Rochester as a Red Wings fan and lifelong O's fan. Earl was the epitome of baseball...heart, unbelievable passion and work ethic. The world of baseball is better because of him. He will be missed by all, even the umpires who might not want to admit it. RIP Mr. Weaver...#4 lives on forever.
R.I.P. Earl Weaver - Thank you for you constant striving for following rules and your insistance on practice, practice, practice. "Deep Depth" and using a player on pure statistics was ingenius. Hopefully Heaven will have a place for you to smoke a pack of cigarettes in the dugout!! Please say hi to Dave McNally, Pat Dobson, Mike Cuellar, and Mark Belanger, and be to nice Ron Luciano.
RIP Earl You were the greatest. Our love to Kim & Marianna and the rest of your family.
Ralph, Theresa & Danny Draper

Dear Marianna and family,
We were so sad to hear about Earls death. I know you will miss him terribly, along with many others lives he touched. God bless you during this difficult time.

Earl Weaver was a master at changing hitting line ups, there will never be another oriole like this man,his passion as a manager will never be matched,the best way for a manager to learn to be a winner is watching some old earl weaver footage,earl thanks for the great memories,you made it so exciting to be an oriole fan that i will never forget you and i know that im speaking for millions of oriole fans that loved you,may god bless your family during this difficult time
I can picture Pat Santarone waiting at the Pearly Gates for you with some of his freshly picked tomatoes, and saying, "Hey, what took you so long to get here?" He loved you. My condolences to Marianna and family.
May God give u comfort thru this difficult time. He can love u past ur pain and heal ur hurt.
Thanks for the memories coach,you are and will always be a class act.You and St.Pete can call the game now,so R.I.P.
Thirteen years ago I met Mr. Weaver at a baseball camp in Fort Myers. We spent probably an hour together, talking about baseball and some of the people who've played, managed and umpired. It was a fascinating conversation. I didn't know what to expect from this "hothead" manager from a long-time rival (Red Sox fan here). What I got was a memory that will last a lifetime from a gracious and interesting person who I'll never forget--not as some detached image and public figure but rather as a human being with a rich experience that he was more than willing to share with another human who loves baseball. Thank you Earl Weaver. Rest now. To his family, sorry for your loss.
PICK UP GAME IN CLOUDVILLE AND EARLS FIRST PICK IS STAN THE MAN, HIS HOMETOWN HERO. BIRDS OF A FEATHER!
I think of all the big leaguers who may never have been big leaguers without you, all the winners who would never have known they were winners without you, the coaches who would never have been coaches, the fans who may never have been fans, even the umpires that may never have been umps and the hall of famers who may never have even been famous without the Earl of Baltimore. you helped carry a 7 year old boy who just lost his mother in 1971 thru some of the toughest years of his life and i am forever grateful. i think of your family and the people closest to you and wish you all gods peace.
May God Bless you in your time of sorrow. You have many fond memories to honor him long after his passing. Please know this fine gentleman brought much joy to sports fans all across America.
My condolences goes out to the Weaver family. I am from Baltimore and still love the Orioles. I remember Earl Weaver. Great coach.
You are an icon and will be missed by many. You wore your number 4 proudly.
The City of Elmira, NY will always hold you dear to their hearts! Never missed a game when you managed the AA Pioneers! Thanks for the memories!! RIP
Earl Weaver was what was good in baseball. He was the best manager all-time. I loved his will and his grittyness. He didn't take any crap from anyone. I loved his continuing fued with pitcher Jim Palmer, but at the end Palmer like and respected his baseball manager. We lost a great man today, he made baseball fun and exciting. Thanks for all the wonderful memories of Orioles baseball. RIP Earl of Baltimore.
He was what Baltimore,in that era, was all about.A Gritty,tough winner. Blue collar fun at its best. That city we once knew left,when Earl left.Hope Mr Boh was the first to meet you Earl.RIP.
My sincere condolence for the loss of Earl your dear loved one. May your fond memories of him bring much comfort. Peace and love to your family and friends, and to the spirit you show. email@example.com

The memories of Earl Weaver will always be etched in my mind. My sons and I enjoyed every game he managed.
Condolences to his family. He was one of a kind. He's gone, but the legend lives on.
Our deep sympathy on the passing of your dear loved one. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Weaver Family. May the God who gives peace be with all of you.
RIP Earl. You were the best
God bless Earl's family & friends wherever they may be. Take care. I & who knows how many others distinctly recall a long time ago a multitude of words from Elmira, NY on the sports page. . . . The rest is history.
A great manager who left the game with a host of classic stories and comments. Not well liked by umpires, but loved and adored by the fans. Vividly remember when he would come out on the field and you were entertained. A great baseball man many years ahead of the time. May he rest in peace.
RIP Earl. A Baltimore legend, you'll definitely be missed.
Great memories of Earl's days managing the Elmira Pioneers.
He will be missed.
May he rest in peace.
RIP Mr. Weaver. You made many wonderful memories @ Memorial Stadium for which I will always be thankful. God bless your family. You will be sorely missed.
God Bless, thoughts and prayers to Earl's family and baseball family
I got to watch the duke of earl and little billy martin mix it up in a double header one time.they really put on a show with the umpires.both got ejected. the pitchers were my heroes catfish hunter for new york and jim palmer for baltimore.i sure got my money's worth that day. i have missed you earl.it will never be the same.
Nobody...AND I MEAN NOBODY...could argue the way Earl Weaver could. I loved watching him because there was no mistaking this man's passion for the game.
This lifelong Red Sox fan is going to miss you. Godspeed.
It was sad to hear of the passing of Earl Weaver. On the same day that Stan the Man has passed, some do not know that Mr. Weaver was from St. Louis and was a member of the Cardinals for 13 yrs. He left and went onto be one of the best managers in baseball. He brought excitement to the game and wasn't afraid to give his opinion. There is statement about Earl that his bark was worse than his bite well he sat behind my Mother in high school in St Louis' Beumont high and she said "he was one of the nicest boys in the class"!! So Earl, go see my Mother she will be happy to sit next to you once again!!!
Rest in peace. God bless you!!!
My prayers are with the Oriole nation and your family Earl. You led my boyhood team to greatness and you will never be forgotten.
Most likely greeted at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter and Chuck Tanner. Rest well, Mr. Weaver.
RIP. EARL! WHAT A GREAT MANAGER AND PERSON. IT WAS ALWAYS FUN TO WATCH YOU ARGUING WITH THE UMPS. THE ORIOLES WERE NEVER THE SAME ONCE YOU LEFT. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.
The games were never as much fun after Earl retired. You are missed, Duke of Earl.
May God provide strength and comfort for his family and close friends.
RIP Earl. My husband and I loved our times at Bonaventure Country Club with Earl, his wife and son Mike. Awesome memories! Praying for his many friends and family.
THE DUKE OF EARL WILL BE MISSED IN BALTIMORE HE WAS THE GREATEST COACH WE EVER HAVE WITH SYMPATHY AND LOVE (Job 5:20
Offering my deepest condolences during this difficult time, I'm so very sorry for your loss, death is something we are never prepared for, but please find comfort in knowing God has promised He will do away with sickness, pain and death for His word is truth.
My sincere condolences to the Weaver family. During this sad time, seek God's comfort and God will draw close to you (Ja. 4:8)
Earl, you were the best. You will be greatly missed. RIP.
Spent the day at the Orioles FAN FEST. Everyone's smart phones all got the news at the same time while we were waiting in line to get inside. Tears were flowing and great stories told. The O's did a nice tribute video and hung his jersey on the stage. Buck passed on to us that if he was ablle to talk to Earl he would have said don't let this ruin FAN FEST. The people of Baltimore will never forget him and all of us were glad to see him six times last year at the "YARD " when they got their statues. GOD SPEED and take care of the boys upstairs from your old teams.
Mr.Weaver,it was an honor to watch you manage.you played my beloved pirates twice in the world series (and you lost both times) but the orioles were still a great team.we will miss you sir.our prayers are with your family and with oriole nation.
He worked winters as an auto salesman for us the last two seasons he managed the Pioneers. He never sold much, but, the stories he told on those long winter Elmira nights in the showroom kept us laughing.
Whenever we wanted to see a game, Earl would provide us with front row box seats directly behind home plate and ushers would wait on us with refreshments.
He was always a real classy many to us. He will be missed.
One of the Greatest Managers that ever Coach.
It was a pleasure to know Earl Weaver. I had fun watching him throw his rants with the umpires as I grew up. In fantasy camp he had a great time with campers and the fans. In fact he was so nice, my wife asked him to take a picture of her with Jim Palmer. She has that picture on the wall in her office. Baseball fans will miss this great manager and friend.
We will all miss you, Sandy
Mr Weaver was my next door neighbor as a child, in Richmond Heights. He and his family shaped my live my life in so many ways. One memory has stuck with me for years, and provided many a laugh at my expense when I recount. I was a shy child and hardly spoke. One Christmas season, his daughter and I were curled up at his feet coloring pictures. He shocked me when he growled out to his wife; "for years we have been trying to get her to talk, and now we can't get her to shut up!". Mike, Rhonda and Terry, please know I think of you often, especially today. Thanks for the cherished childhood memories. Denni Laws
Well earl you helped my career in a way I shall always remember when I played for the Baltimore orioles I remember one thing your face from your seat never left my sight almost like you envisioned already the direction of my hits flight also you where the one whom kept smiling more when you where watching me hit just like one of your old coaches and now you'made it to where he is say hello to the man whom kept me at plate.
As a Red Sox fan, I fondly remember Earl Weaver and respected him 100% as the Baltimore Orioles manager. You will be missed mostly by family and close friends, but certainly by the baseball world. Thank you Mr. Weaver for your contributions to Baseball and may you forever RIP. You will be missed but your legacy will never ever be forgotten. God Bless.

Saw Earl as a boy managing at Memorial Stadium in the late sixties. He had the horses to win & he seemed to always push the right buttons. He was then and always will be a baseball legend. Thank you Earl for making baseball an enjoyable past time; RIP and God bless you.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
Thank you again, Earl, for the team autographed baseball you sent to my son who was sick at the time. I am sure that the umpire who really counts, welcomed you Safe at Home.
Earl, thanks for the memories.God bless...V
"I only have 27 outs and I'm not giving away any of them!"
