The baseball world lost another legend yesterday. Brooks Robinson sadly passed away at the age of 86. Robinson was not only a legend of the baseball world, but of the team he spent his entire 23 year career with, the Baltimore Orioles.


Nicknamed "Mr. Oriole", there really is not a name that fits him better. Robinson compiled a 78.4 WAR in over 10,000 at-bats with the O's, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Class of 1983. Robinson was a 18x All-Star, 16x Gold Glove winner, an MVP, All-Star MVP, and a World Series MVP in his two World Series wins.


A Statement from the Robinson Family and the Orioles:


“We are deeply saddened to share the news of the passing of Brooks Robinson. An integral part of our Orioles Family since 1955, he will continue to leave a lasting impact on our club, our community, and the sport of baseball.”

Brooks Robinson is an immortal to baseball. A man who played the game with integrity and dignity. His 23 years in baseball proved he was not just a phenomenal ball player, but a hard worker and idol to many surrounding the world of baseball. Although "Mr. Oriole" is no longer physically here, his impact left will be remembered forever.
