MLB.com, the official Major League Baseball website, reported that Robinson passed away on the 27th (Korean time). Born in 1937, aged 86.
Robinson was a franchise star who debuted in the major league with Baltimore in 1995 and played for only one team for 23 seasons until his retirement in 1977.
He recorded a batting average of 0.267, 268 home runs, 1,357 RBI, 1,232 runs, 2,848 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.322 and an OPS of 0.723 in 2,896 games over 23 seasons.
He doesn’t have much outstanding achievements in batting. However, Robinson showed off the best third base defense in Major League history and won the Gold Glove Award for 16 consecutive years.
Robinson’s Gold Glove wins came from the 1960 season through the 1975 season, six years after his major league debut. During this time, he was also selected as an All-Star for 15 consecutive years.
This is the second-highest number of Gold Glove awards ever. However, except for pitcher (Greg Maddux in the 18th inning), this is the highest record of all time among position players.
Afterwards, Baltimore retired Robinson’s number 5 uniform. Additionally, Robinson was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1983 with 91.88% of the vote.
