Brooks Robinson Statue To Be Unveiled In Baltimore

BALTIMORE (AP) — A statue of Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson will be unveiled this weekend outside Baltimore’s Camden Yards.

The 9-foot-tall bronze statue to be unveiled Saturday depicts Robinson at third base preparing to throw out a runner at first base. A 4 1/2-foot-tall pedestal will have panels describing Robinson’s career.

Robinson played his entire 23-season career for the Orioles, retiring in 1977, and is considered one of the greatest defensive third basemen in baseball history. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1983.
