In the first of two episodes about our hometown of Perry Hall, we speak with Marianna Weaver, widow of legendary O's manager Earl Weaver, and her daughter Kim Benson. From 1968 until 1982, Earl and his family lived in a modest home on Dundawan Road in Perry Hall during an era that saw the O's capture two world championships, four pennants, and six division titles. It was a magical time to follow the O's and to live in Perry Hall. Marianna and Kim share memories of the neighbors they knew, Earl's patience and humor, and the unique way a 10 year-old Kim used a friend's baseball card collection to make clear that a new sheriff was in town to replace Hank Bauer.
