Well well well, look who it is: Earl Fucking Weaver. I submit that Mr. Weaver had the best name that ever existed, at least within the English-speaking world. In fact, I challenge you to submit a real name that’s any better. Bring it!
On a separate note, am I the only person that thinks it’s hilarious that baseball managers wear the same uniform as their players? Is it just in case they decide to put themselves into the game? I mean, look at that picture! Weaver’s even wearing cleats, for Christ’s sake. Imagine if NBA coaches paced about courtside in jerseys, shorts and kneesocks. Or better yet, hockey coaches decked out in gloves and skates. In seriousness, I’m guessing that in the 1800s, a lot of the managers did double as players and thus a retarded tradition was born!
