Orioles’ star third baseman Brooks Robinson dies at 86

Brooks Robinson, a legendary third baseman for the Baltimore Orioles, passed away at the age of 86. Known for his exceptional defensive skills and beloved by fans for his humble demeanor, Robinson helped lead the Orioles to six postseason appearances and two World Series championships. The Orioles expressed their deep sadness at his passing and acknowledged his lasting impact on the team, the community, and the sport of baseball. Robinson’s remarkable play during the 1970 World Series, where he made numerous outstanding plays at third base and batted .429 with two home runs, will forever be remembered by fans. Major League Baseball Commissioner Robert Manfred also extended his condolences, praising Robinson as a true gentleman who represented the game with excellence both on and off the field. Robinson’s legacy was solidified during the 1970 series, where he showcased his defensive prowess at the hot corner and led the Orioles to a 4-1 series victory. In 1964, he was named the American League’s Most Valuable Player, and in 1966, he was named the All-Star Game MVP. Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Robinson turned down a basketball scholarship to play professional baseball for the Orioles. Throughout his career, he excelled defensively, leading the league in fielding percentage and assists multiple times. After retiring, Robinson remained involved in baseball as a broadcaster and served as the president of the MLB Players Alumni Association. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983 and will always be remembered for his exceptional defensive play.
