Amen to that. I remember the trade that sent him from the Reds to Baltimore, citing that his best years were behind him. Just goes to show how wrong a front office can be...(although we know enough about that, don’t we ?)

"The Judge" was a player I respected and always wanted him to become a Detroit Tiger.
Rest In Peace, Mr. Robinson, a baseball great and true Hall of Famer.

You and my wife would get along. She’s from Livonia, and was a devout Tiger fan as a kid the late 60s. Posters of Norm Cash and Al Kaline in her room, that sort of thing.

Each time a great like Frank Robinson passes, a little bit of the glory of the game dies with them. These guys played when baseball was king in America. Robinson played hard, but fair, and winning was everything. We need players like him today. The M's could certainly use one.RIP Big Frank. Loved watching you play.

One of my top 5 favorite players of all time while I was growing up. Was very fortunate to have met him a couple of times at the end of his playing days when he was in LA with Dodgers and Angels. RIP.

I heard on Serius Radio this morning that Big Frank has more statues in MLB than anyone.

Nice article. I remember watching Robinson play, but never realized just how good he was.
