The Orioles will host a public celebration of life for legendary manager EARL WEAVER at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Saturday, April 20 at 2:00 p.m. The program, “A Celebration of Earl,” will include a video tribute and a collection of notable guest speakers to honor the memory of the greatest manager in Orioles history.

Guest speakers include BROOKS ROBINSON, FRANK ROBINSON, RICK DEMPSEY, BUCK SHOWALTER, National Baseball Hall of Fame President JEFF IDELSON and Earl’s son, MIKE WEAVER.

Gates A and H will open at 1:00 p.m. Complimentary parking will be available in Lot B/C, and there is no admission charge to attend. The ballpark will be closed once the event has concluded and will reopen for that night’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at 5:00 p.m.

One of six Orioles Legends to receive his own larger-than-life bronze sculpture at the ballpark last season, Weaver passed away in January at the age of 82. The Orioles will wear a patch on their right uniform sleeve throughout the season in honor of Weaver.
