RIP.

Frank Robinson, Hall of Famer and MLB's first black manager, dies at 83

Baseball Hall of Famer Frank Robinson died Thursday after battling a long illness, according to MASN in Baltimore. He was 83 years old.

Known for his elite talent and intense demeanor, Robinson became a central figure in advancing Major League Baseball’s integration of black players after Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in 1947.

I have two close friends who are also both rabid RABID SF Giants fans, Tom and Jim, brothers. We share all baseball news with each other, we can go months with no contact but for instance today I texted this to both of them and heard back from them immediately

First Tom texted:
"A great ambassador for Major League Baseball & a huge loss. A sad day for baseball fans everywhere"

and his brother texted me

"Just heard the sad news about the passing of Frank Robinson. We lost another baseball great. He's in my top 10 all time"
