Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wilbert Robinson (June 29, 1863 - August 8, 1934), nicknamed "Uncle Robbie," was an American catcher, coach and manager in Major League Baseball. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1945. Born in Bolton, Massachusetts, Robinson was a catcher in the minor New England League in 1885 and made it to the major leagues in 1886 with the Philadelphia Athletics of the American Association, where he remained until 1890. He lasted in the majors until 1902, playing much of his career with two separate Baltimore Orioles franchises - from 1890 to 1899 with the Orioles team which folded after the 1899 National League season, and in 1901-02 with the American League team which moved to New York City in 1903 and became the Yankees.show more
