Baseball Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver, who led the Baltimore Orioles to four American League pennants and one World Series title, died early Saturday, the New York Daily News and the Associated Press reported. He was 82.

Weaver, a St. Louis native, collapsed while on an Orioles fantasy cruise in the Caribbean, the newspaper said. His wife, Maryanne, was with him.

Weaver managed the Orioles from 1968-1986 and led them to five 100-win seasons.

Weaver signed to play professional baseball with his hometown Cardinals in 1948 and spent 12 years in their minor leagues as a light-hitting second baseman.
