During the course of his legendary career, Robinson was selected for 14 All-Star games, won two regular season MVP awards and was named the MVP of the 1966 World Series for the Baltimore Orioles.
Following Robinson's 1965 season with the Reds - the team that signed him out of Xavier University in Cincinnati - GM William DeWitt traded him to the Orioles for two pitchers and an outfielder and to justify it declared Robinson to be "an old 30". He became the first manager of the Washington Nationals after the franchise moved from Montreal for the 2005 season - the Nationals put him in their Ring of Honor.
But one of the greatest gifts I've been given was the privilege of covering and getting to know Frank Robinson, who passed away Thursday at the age of 83. He was 83 years old. Robinson won his MVP awards with the Reds in 1961 and the Orioles in 1966.

"Frank Robinson and I were more than baseball buddies", Hank Aaron tweeted. It was the only home run anyone ever hit out of long-gone Memorial Stadium. He finished out his time on the field as a player-manager of the Indians, making him the first African American manager in the history of baseball. And while he never led his league in a Triple Crown category other than in 1966 when he managed it in all three, he led his league in slugging percentage, OPS and OPS+ four times, including three years in a row (1960-62).
A fearsome hitter, Robinson ranks 10th on the career home run list with 586. Among being both a player and a manager, Robinson worked in the Baltimore Orioles front office and also as vice president of on-field operations for Major League Baseball. His MLB-best marks of 49 home runs, 122 RBIs, .316 batting average and 122 runs scored helped carry the Orioles to their first World Series title.
Robinson retired from playing after the 1976 season, but his managerial career was just beginning.
