    RIP Frank Robinson

    My first train ride was from Indy to Union Station with the Little League team to see Frank, Nux and my favorite BIG KLU @ Crosley. Note to LL Managers: Never serve soup to kids on a train, it was 6 inches deep.

    And apparent Xavier alum. https://www.baseball-reference.com/p...obinfr02.shtml

    I can barely remember him playing for the Orioles but do remember he hit a home run in his first game as player-manager for the Indians.

    Wasn't alive when he played, but it's very hard to overlook someone who won MVP in both leagues. He is still the only player to do so.

    Godspeed Frank.

    A great player and one of baseballís all time worst trades.

    Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.

    Obviously the Babe Ruth trade was worse, but is it in the top 3 with it?

    I think I heard his name before, but never that loud
