Orioles Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver will be memorialized Saturday in Davie, Fla., after a private, family-only ceremony tonight in South Florida.
Weaver, 82, collapsed and died Friday night on a cruise ship. Weaver and his wife, Marianna, had attended the cruise -- which was not affiliated with the organization but featured former players -- for years.
On Saturday afternoon, the family will receive visitors beginning at 3 p.m. at Fred Hunter’s University Drive (Funeral) Home in Davie, Fla. A memorial service will begin at 4 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Weaver’s memory can be made to Miami Children's Hospital Foundation, 3100 SW 62nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33155.
The Orioles plan to hold a memorial service in Baltimore for Weaver at some point, but a date has not yet been set.
