1 Don Birchett 2 months ago Baseball lost another legend today with the passing of Frank Robinson, MVP star with both the Cincinnati Reds and Baltimore Orioles. Being a lifelong Orioles fan, I remember well hearing that the Orioles had acquired him prior to the '66 season in exchange for Milt Pappas and the spark that gave the team for the '66 World Championship season. Frank became the first African-American manager when he was named the player-manager for the Cleveland Indians. He closed his career as #4 on the all-time home run list with 586. Steroid inflation has lowered that total to #10 at present.Thanks for the memories, Frank. Requiescat in Pacem.
