"Earl Sidney Weaver" (August 14, 1930 – January 19, 2013) was an American professional baseball player, Hall of Fame Major League manager (baseball)/manager, author, and television broadcaster. After playing in minor league baseball, he retired without playing in Major League Baseball (MLB). He became a minor league manager, and then managed in MLB for 17 years with the Baltimore Orioles (1968–1982; 1985–1986). Weaver's style of managing was summed up in the quote: "pitching, defense, and the three-run homer." He did not believe in placing emphasis on "small ball" tactics such as stolen bases, hit and run (baseball)/hit and run plays, or sacrifice bunts. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1996 in baseball/1996.
