BriefingWire.com, 2/08/2019 - Frank Robinson was not only one of the greatest players in the history of Major League Baseball, but a civil rights pioneer, becoming the first black manager in the league. He was inducted in the Hall of Fame on the first ballot, bolstered by impressive numbers. His credentials include:

The only player to be the MVP of both the American League and the National League

He played professionally for 20 years

In that 20 year history, he accumulated a .294 batting average, 2,943 hits, and 586 home runs.

Robinson’s career included working with many teams throughout that history. Many of them have come out to pay tribute to Robinson.

His earliest MLB team was the Cincinnati Reds. The Cincinnati Business Journal reports “Frank Robinson is considered one of the greatest players to ever wear a Cincinnati Reds uniform,” Reds CEO Bob Castellini stated. “His talent and success brought dynamic change to the Reds and to our city. His retired Number 20 and statue gracing the gates of Great American Ball Park stand in tribute and appreciation for the immense contribution Frank made to the Reds.”

The next stop along the way of his career was with the Baltimore Orioles. In a statement the Angelos family stated “Frank Robinson was not only one of the greatest players in Orioles history, but was also one of the premier players in the history of baseball. Fans will forever remember Frank for his 1966 season in which he won the Triple Crown and was named MVP during a year that brought Baltimore its first World Series championship. His World Series MVP performance capped off one of the greatest individual seasons in baseball history. An Orioles Legend and a Baseball Hall of Famer, Frank brought us so many wonderful memories, including two championships, during his time in Baltimore.” Read more.

After that Robinson played for the LA Dodgers. In a blog post the Los Angeles Dodgers, Mark Langill stated “Baseball trailblazer and Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, the first African-American manager and the first player in Major League history to win the MVP in each league, passed away Thursday morning at 83 years old at his home in California.”
