OT: Rest in Peace Frank Robinson

Baseball lost a good one today. Frank gave me memories at many stops in his career, from his playing time with the Orioles to his managerial stops both with the Orioles and the Nationals. I hope the Ballpark in Heaven treats him well and my thoughts go out to his family. Going to miss that big easy smile he always seemed to have.

RIP Robinson.

First man to win an MVP in both leagues and first African American manager.

Using /s is for cowards.

Legend...loved his presence when he was with the Nats

True legend, my baseball sports Idol growing up, Frank Robinson and Johnny U. He was a man's man the way he played the game, and always always a class act. It was a different era of baseball in the 60's and early 70's, and in my opinion it was the best period for baseball. When the game went from black and white to color, Frank was a fierce competitor, and a perennial all star along with the likes of Aaron, Mays, Clemente, and Kaline. I loved his swing and remember listening on the radio when he hit two grand slams in the same game. RIP #20- Legends never die!!

This is very sad. He made some terrible Nats teams competitive when they first moved from Montreal to DC. The videos of him from his playing days are fun to watch.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

He was a great ambassador for the game.

One of the true greats in baseball history. He embodies the baseball hall of fame- what it should be. It has become the "hall of good" recently, which is sad. RIP to one of the best to ever do it.

One of my favorite Frank Robinson moments. Such an ambassador of the game. It's great that he'll forever be the first National's coach.
