The Hall of Famer and Orioles legend is 80 years old on Thursday
Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson is an Orioles legend, one of the greatest defensive third baseman in the history of baseball, an MVP, a two-time World Series champion, a Hall of Famer and so much more to the Orioles family. On Thursday, he's also 80 years old.
The Orioles have posted a video message to him:
Robinson beat prostate cancer in 2009 and in 2012 fell off the stage at a charity event, suffering injuries to his head and upper back, fracturing several vertebrae. Still, he's alive and kicking at age 80.
Happy birthday, Brooks!
