There isn't much to be said about Brooks Robinson that hasn't already been said. He was a heck of a third baseman for a LONG time with the Baltimore Orioles. When I was a kid I liked getting the cards of guys who had a lot of stat lines on the backs (as long as it didn't say major and minor league batting record).
- Brooks didn't play high school baseball and was discovered while playing second base for a church baseball team.
- Here is a Sports Illustrated article written about his offensive woes toward the end of his career.
- Here is his official site.
