Former WF Cardinal Weaver reportedly dies


Hall of Fame baseball manager Earl Weaver has reportedly died. The Baltimore Sun is reporting the death of the fiery 82 year old Oriole manager. No official statement has been released to our knowledge.

Local baseball fans will recall Weaver fondly from seeing him play- or hearing stories- when he was a member of the West Franfrot Cardinals. That minor league team was an affilitiate of the St.Louis Cardinals . They played their games in a wooden ballpark located where the National Guard Armory is now located in West Frankfort.
