‘The Greatest Defensive Ever’ Robinson Dies At 86 In 16th GG

Brooks Robinson, a 16-time Gold Glove winner who is often cited as one of the best third base defenders of all time, has passed away.

MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, reported Robinson’s death on Sunday. He was 86 years old, born in 1937.

Robinson was a franchise star who made his major league debut with Baltimore in 1995 and played 23 seasons with one team until his retirement in 1977.토토사이트

Over his 23 seasons, he batted .267 with 268 home runs, 1357 RBI, 1232 runs scored, 2848 runs batted in, and a 0.322 OPS of 0.723 in 2896 games.

That’s not much to write home about in terms of hitting. But Robinson played the best third base defense in major league history, winning the Gold Glove for 16 consecutive years.

Robinson’s Gold Glove wins came from 1960, his sixth year in the majors, to 1975. During that time, he was also named an All-Star 15 years in a row.

This is the second most Gold Glove wins of all time. It’s the most by any position player other than pitcher (Greg Maddux, 18).

Robinson’s number 5 has since been retired by Baltimore. Robinson was also elected to the Hall of Fame in 1983, receiving 91.88% of the vote.
