Baseball Legend Frank Robinson Dies at 83
Hall of Famer Frank Robinson -- the first black manager in Major League Baseball and the only player to win the MVP award in both the American League and National League -- has died at the age of 83.
Robinson had been in hospice care at his home in Bel Air, California.
Robinson hit 586 career home runs and won the Triple Crown while leading the Baltimore Orioles to their first MLB World Series championship in 1966.
The 12-time All-Star outfielder fulfilled his quest to become the first African-American manager in the big leagues when the Cleveland Indians hired him in 1975. In his first at-bat as the Indians' player-manager, he hit a home run.
Robinson also managed San Francisco, Baltimore and Montreal, and he became the first manager of the Washington Nationals after the franchise moved from Montreal for the 2005 season.
