    Default RIP Earl Weaver

    Irascible, chain-smoking, umpire-baiting longtime Baltimore Orioles manager Earl Weaver penned his own epitaph.
    "On my tombstone just write, 'The sorest loser that ever lived,'" he once said.


    Weaver, 82, a member of baseball's Hall of Fame and the winningest manager in the franchise's history, died late Friday while on a baseball-
    themed cruise, said Monica Barlow, a team spokeswoman.


    The cause apparently was a heart attack, the team said on its website.


    Weaver, who piloted the Orioles from 1968 to 1982 and 1985-86, led the team to the 1970 World Series championship, four American League pennants and six American League East Division titles.
