Earl Weaver was a 5-foot-6 rabble rouser whose penchant for quarreling with umpires belied a cerebral approach to managing that has stood the test of time.
Stan Musial was a humble slugger with a funky batting stance who was beloved in St. Louis and respected pretty much everywhere else.
Saturday began with news of Weaver's passing, and by the end of the night Musial had died, too, leaving baseball to reflect on two very different but very distinguished careers.
Commissioner Bud Selig describes Weaver as colorful and loyal, and he says Musial was ``a true gentleman.''
Weaver was born in St. Louis, and Musial became a star there. Aside from that, the two were about as different as a pair of Hall of Famers could be.
