Brooks Robinson Remains Hospitalized After Fall

BALTIMORE (AP) — Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson remains hospitalized in Florida with a shoulder injury following a freak fall from a stage.

Robinson fractured his scapula in the fall, which occurred on Friday night during a player reception in Hollywood, Fla. before the annual Joe DiMaggio Legends Game.

Robinson was sitting at a table on a raised stage that had a curtain behind it. He leaned against the curtain, thinking there
was a wall behind it. There was no wall, and Robinson subsequently tumbled backward off the stage and landed awkwardly on his back, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Robinson, 74, did not receive a head injury, his representative, Diane Hock, said Monday. Robinson is receiving treatment in a Florida hospital, Hock said.
