Look who died in 2013. Who will YOU miss the most?

Looking back on 2013, CBS Sunday Morning host Charles Osgood put together an amazing retrospective of the earthly stars who are now in heaven!

Of all the celebrities that he covered, my personal hero was the unforgettable Baltimore Orioles manager Earl Weaver.

Here's a moment from the CBS video linked below where Earl was giving the umpire a piece of his mind, just before getting ejected. Something he was used to. Weaver was ejected from games at least 91 times during the regular season (98, according to one source)[4] and several more times during post-season play. He was ejected from both games in a doubleheader three times!!

Here's a moment I had meeting the great Earl Weaver in 1997 at camp with the Orioles. Yes that's me with brown hair and much heavier!
