Meanwhile, I remember being at a Sox-O's doubleheader at the old ballpark in 1979. Weaver got ejected from at least the first game, maybe the second one too but I don't remember.
According to his bio, he was ejected from both ends of a doubleheader three times. It does not say who the O's were playing at the time.
Best Weaver line: he once told an umpire that he could appear on What's My Line
wearing his mask, chest protector and ball/strike indicator and still nobody would guess he was an umpire.
