Frank Robinson Passed Away

Postby fredzoyt » Thu Feb 07, 2019

Frank Robinson, legend and pioneer, dies
MLB's first African-American manager only player to win MVP in each league

Decided this deserved its own thread. One of the greatest players to ever step foot on the field. I loved watching him play while growing up.

Respectfully,
Dave

I became an Oriole fan in 1969 because of the cool hats. When they lost to the Mets I was in the 4th grade. It hurt so bad to me I recall the moment I heard like other tragedies where I was at the time. Frank was a favorite and I was so shocked when the O’s traded him a few years later. Frank could do it all. He was so respected maybe more for the type man he was.

Tarheel, I have a similar story/memory. Same years (1969 &1970] I was on the pee wee league Orioles, only we didn't have the awesome caps. Frank was my 2nd favorite Robinson on the Orioles, i played 3rd base and after a few excellent lucky plays some parents started calling me "Brooks". :lol:
I have a few Frank Robinson baseball cards but most of Brooks'
It broke my heart when the Mets upset them, and Frank's passing does too..
