Statue number 2 was unveiled on Saturday; it was Weaver, who was not just an Orioles legend, but a major influence on Nats skipper Davey Johnson. He even took notice when Bryce Harper stole home against the Phillies.

“That was one of my plays we worked on all the time,” Weaver said, via MLB.com. “So Davey still remembers some of the stuff he learned here.”

Anyhow, that’s all worth a blog post. Above, it’s Weaver with Murray and Robinson. Below, it’s the new Weaver statue, along with the giveaway item from Saturday’s game. Those images are courtesy the Orioles.
