On Saturday, the Orioles lost one of their All-Time greats when former manager Earl Weaver passed away while on a cruise.

Earl Weaver had an illustraious career as the manager of the Baltimore Orioles. He spent 17-years total as the Orioles skipper, first from 1968-82 and then again from 1985-1986. In total he finished with a record of 1,480-1060 with five 100-win seasons. He only had one losing season in his managerial career. He led the Orioles to six Eastern Division titles, four American League pennants, and a World Series championship.

Weaver was inducted into Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1996.

The “Earl of Baltimore” will be remembered forever.
