Orioles Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson was injured in a fall Friday night, reports Joe Capozzi of Fish Tank blog. Robinson fell backward off a stage at a pre-game dinner for the Joe DiMaggio Legends Game in Florida -- which is being played Saturday -- after he leaned back in his chair expecting to hit a wall. Instead, there was no wall and Robinson fell a reported six to eight feet before hitting the ground, suffering two fractures -- including one to his clavicle (commonly known as the collar bone).

Robinson was supposed to play in the game but now is obviously unable to do so.

“I understand he is doing fine but I really don’t know any more details other than that happened and he won’t be with us today,’’ Kevin Janser, the executive vice president for the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation, said (Fish Tank).

Let us send our best wishes to the 74-year-old Robinson in his recovery.

Best wishes on a speedy recovery to my all time favorite player and the reason i became a baseball player. Ill bet if he had something in his hands on the fall down off the stage he held on to it and got up to finish the play...."Brooks has the dinner roll...he gets up and tosses it to the diner next to him...what a play!!!!" Hang in there # 5.

All the best to Brooksie. He is not only the very best defensive 3rd baseman in Major League history, he is also one of the classiest men of all time.  Get well quickly.
