Earl Weaver’s Ejections


On this date in 1975, Baltimore Orioles manager Earl Weaver got ejected twice – during both games of a double header – by umpire Ron Luciano. Throughout his MLB career, Weaver was ejected around 100 times. His double header ejections on August 15, 1975, was just one of three times he got ejected twice in one day.

Classic arguments and antics by managers such as Weaver really don’t happen any more – which I kind of miss. Sure, they were often a bit too much, but they could also be rather entertaining. What do you think?
