Former manager for the Baltimore Orioles major-league baseball team. Managed the Orioles from 1968 to 1982, and again from 1985-1986. Won the 1970 World Series, had his number (#4) retired in 1982, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1996. One of baseball's old-school managers.

Tom Moore: "Bill Whitehouse from Frederick, Maryland wants to know why you and the Orioles don't go out and get some more team speed?"
Earl Weaver: "Team speed for chrissakes, you get fuckin' goddam little fleas on the fuckin' bases, getting picked off, tryin' to steal, gettin' thrown out, takin' runs away from you, get them big cocksuckers that can hit the fuckin' ball out the ballpark and ya can't make any goddam mistakes."
