Cruise News  No comments

People are a little sadder today on hearing the news of the death of baseball hall of fame manager Earl Weaver who passed away early Saturday am while cruising onboard a Baltimore Orioles themed cruise.

The 82 year old Weaver was onboard Celebrity Silhouette when he suffered a heart attack, according to the article on Baltimore Orioles website.

Baseball hall of fame manager – history

Weaver was well known manager in the whole of Orioles history, who chalked up just over 1,480 wins in a career that spanned 17 years.

“The Earl of Baltimore led the O’s to four World Series and won one, in 1970. The fiery manager was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1996”.

“Earl Weaver was one of the most colorful personalities and fearless leaders the game has ever known,” Jane Forbes Clark, Chairwoman of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, said in a news release. “He managed with intensity, flair and an acerbic wit that made him a legend in Baltimore and among baseball fans everywhere. He will be deeply missed in Cooperstown. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Marianna, and the entire Weaver family.”

Baseball hall of fame manager set sail January 13

Weaver was participating in The Original Baltimore Baseball Cruise, which sailed out of Fort Lauderdale on January 13, according to news source Colleen McDaniel, Cruise critic.

Traveling on any cruise ships now a days they all have a responsive team of doctors and nurses that man the hospital.  In fact they are fully equipped to handle most emergencies.  A very dear friend of mine had kidney disease and holidays were a nightmare as you needed to coincide your travel with local hospitals in order to have daily dialyses.

When I suggested a much needed break on board a cruse ship they started to make inquiries regarding the dialysis needed and to their surprise the hospital on board their cruise ship had its own dialysis machines.

This gave them the reassurance that they needed to go on a much needed holiday that was stress free due to the equipment that the ship had on board.

I am truly sorry for the loss of baseball hall of fame manager Earl Weaver but can probably think that he passed away with all the people that truly loved him.
