Earl Weaver is my all time favorite manager with Davey Johnson a close second and Ozzie Guillen gaining ground like gangbusters in the middle of the track.

Weaver on Strategy is a must read.

Thanks for sharing.

And here's the infamous Manager's Corner with Earl Weaver where he colorfully answers questions. Now with added psychedelic animated goodness.

STRONG LANGUAGE ALERT!!! for those that have not heard this before.

God I love ol' Earl. Talk about old school. That guy had zero couth, was all anger, spit, and baseball.

The fact that someone tried to have a radio show with him is amazing.

The second clip (radio show) was a goof they did before recording the real show. The first clip was legit.

The 1970s - 1980s were an exciting time to be a baseball fan. White Sox fans had Carey and Piersall, MLB had a legitimate commissioner and players were steroid free. Fans also had Saturday Baseball on NBC (preceeded by This Week in Baseball with Mel Allen), Monday Night Baseball on ABC and Vin Scully & Joe Garagiola doing playoff / World Series broadcasts.

I'd never thought about it that way, but you're right. MLB had not yet become "corporatized" like it is now, and wild characters like Weaver, Billy Martin, Caray, Piersall, Veeck, Finley, and even Steinbrenner could run loose.

The White Sox' summer-long party of 1977 was in that mix too. Man, that was fun. The 2005 season tops them all, of course, but for just having a good time the 70s and 80s were a great era.

I hope Ozzie and KW and A.J. and Buehrle don't lose their edge. We need more personality, not less.

Was that a slimmed down Ken Kaiser heading back to take up his position behind home plate at the very end of that clip...?
I remember once the San Diego Chicken was beating up on a life-sized stuffed umpire and Ken Kaiser picked up the Chicken and body-slammed him, pro wrestling style, right on top of the dummy. He then laid the dummy on top of the Chicken and one of the other umpires counted the Chicken out.
Classic.

Tebman, very well played.

Now, people will complain their kids were subjected to cursing at the ballgame. How many sensitivity classes would Billy Martin and Earl Weaver have attended?
