Brooks Robinson Death

On Tuesday, 27, September, 2023 the Baltimore Orioles announced the death of Brooks Robinson. At the time of his death, he was 86 years old. Robinson has been dubbed “The Human Vacuum Cleaner” or “Mr. Hoover” for his defensive abilities, although most people know him as “Mr. Oriole.”

“We are deeply saddened to share the news of the passing of Brooks Robinson. An integral part of our Orioles Family since 1955, he will continue to leave a lasting impact on our club, our community, and the sport of baseball,” the Orioles said.

Maryland Gov. Wes Moore posted on X, formerly known as Twitter: “Rest in peace to a true Baltimore legend, someone who defined loyalty in sports by playing for the O’s for 23 seasons — his entire career.”

Brooks Robinson Career

Robinson was perhaps Major League Baseball’s finest fielding third baseman, collecting 16 consecutive Gold Glove Awards.

Brooks is the only guy I know who has a farm system for gloves, former Orioles manager Earl Weaver. He’s got a year’s worth of gloves. He retires the old ones when they can no longer go to the left for balls hit into the hole.

From 1955 until 1977, he spent his whole career with the Orioles. Robinson was a two-time World Series champion (1966 and 1970), a World Series MVP, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983. Robinson has 1,357 RBIs, 2,848 base hits, and a 267 batting average in his career.
