My favorite MLB manager of all time. He signed an autograph for me at Fenway Park when I was a little kid. He asked me who my favorite Oriole player was and I told him, "Mark Belanger, your Shortstop". Five minutes later, Belanger came over and gave me a signed baseball.

Thanks for the memories and RIP Earl.

As an A's fan, I never liked the guy. But I do respect how he NEVER CUSSED. He would call an umpire a "rocksucker"

It's like he was Covers before there was Covers.....

One of top 3 managers baseball has ever seen. He revolutionized baseball and the way it is managed. He invented sabermetrics and moneyball before anyone had any idea what those things were. He was a genius and well ahead of his time.
