Picks and Pans Review: Weaver on Strategy

UPDATED 05/28/1984 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/28/1984 at 01:00 AM EDT

by Earl Weaver with Terry Pluto

When asked for his secret of winning baseball, Baltimore Oriole manager Earl Weaver had a stock answer: good pitching and three-run homers. In this book, Weaver, who retired after the 1982 season, gives plenty of advice. For instance, the man who was ejected frequently during his 15-year major league career, writes, "First, never curse an umpire. Curse the call, say it was a bleeping bad call, but never call the umpire a name." If you turn into a nice guy, Earl, you'll be disappointing a lot of people. (Collier Books, paper, $6.95)
