Frank Robinson, a former Baltimore Oriole and Hall of Famer, has died at the age of 83.
He was the first player to win MVP awards in both leagues and the first African-American manager in MLB. Robinson was elected to the Hall-of-Fame on the first ballot, along with his friend, Hank Aaron, in 1982. At the time, they ranked first and fourth on the all-time homer list.
RIP to MLB legend Frank Robinson.
