Pitching, defense and 3 run homers. Earl knew how to manage a baseball team.

Pie chart from Buzzfeed showing the 94 times Earl was ejected from a ball game.

18.28% - Miscellaneous

Miscellaneous reasons included, but not limited to:

Shredded rulebook
Smoking in dugout
Piling dirt on second base in argument
Bumped umpire
Arguing over second visit to mound by opposing manager
Threw equipment over called third strike
“Constant arguing”

haha, he was great.

Earl was a treat. He took arguing with an Umpire to almost an art form. Joy to watch and a class act. “Don’t worry, the fans don’t start booing until July.” RIP Earl.

A legend. He was doing a lot of the “Moneyball” stuff we hear about now before Billy Bean even entered professional baseball. RIP Earl and thanks for the winning tradition you cemented with our beloved Orioles.

Yeah guys. This is Earl at his best. Terry Crowley was by the way still the Orioles hitting coach as of a couple years ago heh. Earl’s just joking around from what I understand in the video. Crow was actually a very good pinch hitter.

And now Stan Musial has passed. What a sad day for baseball.

Earl loved 3 run homers. I remember that. And he had Yaz and Eddie Murray so he saw a lot of them.
