When an irresistible force (Umpire Ron Luciano) met a reprovable, and removable object (Manager Earl Weaver)


Great find in the Sports Illustrated vault. With the recent passing of Earl Weaver I couldn’t help but remember all of the stories that I had heard about his famous run ins with umpires. Many years ago I read Ron Luciano’s books: The Umpire Strikes Back, and Strike Two. I was looking for those books recently when I stumbled across this terrific article. This is worth the time it takes to read it. This makes me really want to read those books again.
