Robby's Rooter

Dick Heller writes a glowing love letter/hagiography introducing Frank Robinson to Washington.

It's a nice piece giving some background on his pretty amazing career. For as much success as Robinson found in both leagues, I'm always quite amazed at how underrated he is by the public at large. He had the unfortunate luck of playing in the shadow of Willie Mays at the beginning of his career and Hank Aaron in the end.
