Really nice tribute, Tony. Also good call on how he always knew if someone that was banned came back with a different username. Haha it was like a sixth sense he had. 

Lol, it really was. He would tell me, this is so-so and he's back, what do you want me to do? Or sometimes he would just re-ban them depending on their violations. He was the best at that.

So sorry to hear this. I never got to meet him in person. But the O's have lost one of the great ambassadors for their brand with that passing of Mr. Williams.

 

God bless you Weams, you will be missed!

I'm very sorry, Denise and OH folks, to hear about Michael's passing. He was a very sweet man and kind soul -- may his memory be a blessing to us all. Denise, you and your family will be in our prayers.

--Nick

I didn't want to start a new topic for this so here it is. I never was good at deciding what belonged inside a thread and what should be its own topic. 😕

I'll be updating information about the memorial service on the site below, once arrangements get set, but it won't be until later this year. I'll somehow get that onto the OH site as well. 

I miss him so much, but have really felt all the support that's come through here. Thank you all so much.

Weams Obituary and Event Information

I had a chance to read the obituary tonight.   It was beautifully done and I learned a few things about Weams that I never knew despite our long association.   I’m still having a hard time believing he’s gone, but comforted by knowing that the impact he had on people will live on.

    • Yeah, so I’ve held off telling the story about my interaction w/ Jones, but he’s no longer an Oriole, so.... I posted years ago about a hitting clinic he held at SDSU w/ Harold Reynolds. It was a fun time for me and my daughters taking a road trip from Los Angeles.  After the clinic was over we, of course, went to see about getting something signed or a picture. We waited patiently as he signed for a number of people and then I approached him to get a picture of him and my girls. He started to lineup to do so and then balked at the idea, saying it would take too much time, at which the expressions of my kids faces visibly dropped. Disappointing to say the least, but I explained it away with some such fatherly bs.  I never mentioned it in the thread about our trip because I knew there would likely be disbelief or outright anger for me calling out an Oriole player, especially Jones. After all these years, it wasn't a huge deal, but yes, I lost respect for him. As far as I know, Palmer has always been great with not only fans, but going out of his way to be available for them. There’s also no one else I’d rather listen to call a game than Jim Palmer. His stories are part of that.
    • Well Machado should’ve been dealt the offseason before but somehow we were still going for it with a team that actually won 47 games. The only thing bad I could say about what DD did in the Machado trade, is that he should’ve gotten more A ball players versus trying to get players that were closer to being ready. However, The Dodgers had just spent $50+ million on Diaz, Pop was 20, and Kremer was leading all of milb in SO. 
    • Unless the CBA changes there is zero incentive to call up AR before June 1. It’s not like another 60 days of “bad” PR is going to hurt this franchise any more. 
    • Oh, absolutely.   The O’s were leading the division by six games when this news broke.   It stung pretty badly to lose Manny in that situation.   As it turns out, the team played well without him for the rest of the regular season.   But we’ll always wonder if he could have made a difference in that KC series, if he’d managed to rehab and return to the field.     Some posters faulted him for not acceding to the team’s wishes.   Not me though.  
    • Win 3 Cy Youngs, 3 World Series and a WS game in 3 decades and you can be as arrogant as you want.   Palmer rules.
    • So trade our best performing position player in order to get prospects that don’t usually pan out… i.e Machado deal  Pass
