Tantrum Classic Earl Weaver Rant

A video of Earl Weaver and an Umpire discussing the finer things in life.

First of all... NSFW or BSK due to intense foul language.

My question is, is the sound track accompanying the video legit? While I have no doubt Earl WOULD say the things the video has him saying, I find it hard to believe that any mikes in the stadium would have picked up the argument between Weaver and the Ump so clearly.

I've read that the umpire was wearing a microphone.

They evidently showed a clip of that to the HOF crowd in 2007, when Weaver got in.

Only the first few seconds, and, I guess, with captions, rather than voice.
