Former Orioles manager Earl Weaver remembered at memorial service in Fla.

“...Dick Gordon, Weaver’s marketing manager, led the service. The family requested he obtain a copy of Terry Cashman’s song, “The Earl of Baltimore,” to be played during the ceremony.

“Being with Earl so many years, he wouldn’t be satisfied,” Gordon said. “I could do better than that.”

He then introduced Cashman, the famed baseball songwriter, to sing his tribute to Weaver.

Brooks was the heart. Frank was the soul. McNally, Mike and Palmer were his Orioles, winning with Weaver, winning for Baltimore. The men in blue, oh he drove them wild. The fight and the fire, that leprechaun smile. We’ll always remember the Earl of Baltimore…”

Time to put on my picture disk and sing along.

A shame Earl had to die on the same day as Musial. Neither deserves to overshadow the other one, but it was inevitable that Stan the Man would win out.
