TOWSON, Md. (WJZ/AP) — Fans of Baltimore Orioles legend Brooks Robinson are wishing him well as he recovers from a fever and infection.

Robinson is at Greater Baltimore Medical Center in Towson. He was to have an outpatient procedure there last Thursday, but was admitted after becoming ill. He said in a statement that he’s had a “successful procedure” to relieve his symptoms.

GBMC set up an email address for fans, and hospital officials say the good wishes have been pouring in to getwell@gbmc.org.

Robinson has received hundreds of messages from fans during his hospital stay. Robinson has thanked everyone for their prayers and support.

Robinson, who’s 73, played for the O’s from 1955-1977.
