A great Baseball story (heads up $tevie)

50 years ago, Frank Robinson did what no other man did before or since - he hit a home run entirely out of Memorial Stadium.

This is a story more about the home run, the ball itself and the boys that found it outside the stadium that day than it is about Robinson. I don't think people in Baltimore need reminding about what a great player he was...

Didn't know this. Great story.

Thanks for sharing! I spent many hours in Memorial Stadium growing up, and this brings back some warm memories.

That's a great story. Frank Robinson was one of my favorite players. A monster of a player. Monster. He went to McClymonds High School in Oakland where he played basketball on the same team with Bill Russell. He also played High School baseball with Vada Pinson and Curt Flood (that must have been a really good team). First black manager in MLB. First in the American League and National League. Not to mention his Presidential Medal of Freedom and his number 20 being retired by two teams. On top of being a really cool dude.
