When Mr. Robinson retired after 21 seasons as a player in 1976, his 586 home runs ranked fourth behind Aaron, Babe Ruth and Mays. (He is now 10th on the all-time list.) He finished his career with a .294 batting average and 1,812 RBI (21st all time). He was named to the all-star team in 12 seasons and was a first-ballot Hall of Famer in 1982.

The Summer of '89 I'll forever cherish.  That was the "Why nOt" year, when Frank managed the O's to within a weekend series of the playoffs with a rag-tag bunch of no-name players (the ones not named Ripken).  Remember "Babe Loops"?

Luis Aparicio, Boog Powell, Brooks Robinson and Frank Robinson. THESE WERE MY HEROES WHEN I FIRST MOVED TO BMORE IN 1966. FRANK WAS THE PRIDE OF BLACK BALTIMORE AND A FIERCE PLAYER WHO TOOK NO s**t FROM ANYONE. MAY HE NOW REST IN PEACE.
