Frank Robinson means an awful lot to the Orioles -- he had perhaps the best years of his career with the team and won Manager of the Year with them in 1989. He's so important that Buck Showalter assigned prospect Josh Hart a book report on Robinson after Hart admittted he was unfamiliar with the Orioles legend. Hart excelled (Showalter gave the paper an A-plus) but the requirements for MLB success -- quick hands, good eyes, patience -- generally do not include historical erudition. This does give us a chance to remember just how dominant Robinson was. Have you seen his numbers in 1966, his first year in Baltimore? They're ridiculous.
