Frank Robinson (born August 31, 1935 in Beaumont, Texas), is a former Major League Baseball outfielder and manager.

He won the Triple crown, was a member of two teams that won the World Series (the 1966 and 1970 Baltimore Orioles), and amassed the fourth-most career home runs at the time of his retirement (he is currently tied for eighth). Robinson was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.
