Baseball legend Frank Robinson has died, according to multiple reports.

The Hall of Famer, who was Major League Baseball's first black manager and the first and only player to win MVP in both the American and National leagues, was 83 years old.

One of the bigger names in baseball when I was a kid. (Particularly when he played for Baltimore, and opponents had to face two all-time great Robinsons: Frank and Brooks.)

Frank Robinson was a great man and baseball player, he was practically Mr. Everything during his time. As a Pirate fan, I was always awe-struck by him. RIP Mr. Robinson.
