WASHINGTON -- He's Baltimore's other Hall of Fame manager and even greater than Earl Weaver.Ned Hanlon was the manager of the historic Orioles team that won three straight National League pennants a century ago. He had none of Earl Weaver's flamboyance. He left tramping on the umpires' toes to his players.But he was an inventive strategist who left far more of an impact on the national game. No three-run homers for Hanlon. He was TC the father of ''scientific'' or ''inside'' baseball the bunt, the Baltimore chop, the hit-and-run.

Former Oriole manager Earl Weaver has made the Veterans Committee short list of 15 candidates for nomination to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. This is first year of eligibility for Weaver, who never played in the majors but managed more than 14 years and has one of the best winning percentages. The committee and the Baseball Writers Association of America often have been reluctant to elect someone to the hall on his first year of eligibility. The writers vote on players retired at least five years and have elected Tom Seaver and Rollie Fingers; the committee votes on non-players and players no longer eligible for election by the writers.

Here are some quotes from a wild night at Camden Yards -- the Orioles' first division title since 1997. Manager Buck Showalter: "You get older, you want to get a good angle and a good seat and see good people get a return for what they put into it and what they're trying to achieve. And this is a huge step, to get a chance now. We've got to figure out a way to win 11 games. " Showalter on changing his seat in the dugout and ending up next to the plaque of Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver in the dugout: “There are some great moments in your life.

The Atlanta Braves hadn't won a thing in seven years when they installed Bobby Cox as manager 65 games into the 1990 season. They haven't finished a full season out of first place since. So a manager must be pretty important to a baseball franchise, right? Well, consider an alternative example from Orioles history. Earl Weaver was a genius, pretty much any baseball person will tell you. He went through 15 seasons and three generations of talent without guiding a loser and retired after the 1982 Orioles won 94 games.

Urban myth? Or Orioles legend? In the end, I wish I had never sent the e-mail and never asked the question. Ignorance isn't so bad, is it? At least not as it concerns Earl Weaver and his linguistic skills, dirtier than the Preakness infield on a rainy day. "I watch the YouTube clip about once a week, just to remind myself about Alice and her tomatoes," I wrote in an e-mail. "But a part of me has always wondered if it's real. And if it is, what's the back story?" Tom Marr was still on the air, but he fired back an e-mail within minutes.
