Baltimore Orioles To Wear Commemorative Patch Honoring Late Manager Earl Weaver During 2013 Baseball Season
Special Thanks to ’30-YOC’ reader, Matt, for sharing this story with me.
From The Baltimore Sun:
The Orioles announced on Friday that they will wear the above patch on their jerseys throughout this season in honor of Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver, who died last month at age 82.
The team will also honor Weaver with a pregame moment of silence and video tribute before Saturday’s Grapefruit League opener against the Minnesota Twins at Ed Smith Stadium.
In addition, Weaver’s No. 4 will be stenciled onto the grass outside of the Orioles dugout in foul territory.
