I grew up watching the Baltimore Orioles and can still pretty much from memory name their starting teams from the late 70s and early 80s Their manager at the time Earl Weaver, and he won a ton, believed in the home run (from my book ‘Trend Following’):
“Earl Weaver designed his offenses to maximize the chance of a three-run homer. He didn’t bunt, and he had a special taste for guys who got on base and guys who hit home runs.”
Some classic Earl (NSFW or kids):
