Orioles Nostalgia: Earl Weaver’s Last Game (Video)

July 16, 2009 |


I dug into my personal archives for this one after Nestor posted a few classic Earl Weaver videos last week.


We all know the story of the 1982 season. With Earl Weaver’s retirement looming, the Orioles played the final game of the season versus the Milwaukee Brewers to determine the AL East Champion.


The O’s lost, but the scene that followed was one to be remembered.


It was only fitting that on the national telecast Howard Cosell was there to make the call. Enjoy the emotion from Weaver and the Baltimore fans, as well as the amazing ability of Cosell to write a priceless script on the fly.
