"In 1891 (Wilbert) Robinson played for Baltimore in the American Association, which became Baltimore in the National League when the American Association folded. The Old Orioles; the most famous team of their time. Joe Kelley , Willie Keeler , Steve Brodie , Dan Brouthers , Sadie McMahon , Heinie Reitz , John McGraw . McGraw and Robinson were the best of friends, an odd couple; McGraw was tough, pugnacious, sensitive, and widely hated; Robinson was easy-going, gregarious, affectionate, and much beloved - but just as tough as McGraw on the field. Defying his body type, Robinson was agile and surprisingly fast, but had no power." - Author Bill James in The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract (Bill James, Free Press Publishing, 100 Greatest Catchers. #86. Wilbert Robinson , 06/13/2003, Page 423)

Did you know that Wilbert Robinson, on June 10, 1892, became the first player in Major League history to record seven hits in a seven at-bats during a 9-inning game ? His truly incredible record remain unmatched until a Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman tied the unbreakable mark in September 16, 1975 ! Do you know who it was? [ Answer ]
Wilbert Robinson Record Setting Box Score
Wilbert Robinson | The Baltimore Sun | June 11, 1892

Wilbert Robinson also drove in eleven runs [ RBI Records ] during that historic game (box score above), another Major League record that appeared unbreakable, until Jim Bottomley had a 12-RBI game on September 16, 1924 !

Those hitting feats are amazing, but as you can see, they have since been duplicated or surpassed. Here is a record set by Uncle Robbie that will never be duplicated or surpassed:

Wilbert Robinson, on September 7, 1896, caught all three games of a triple-header ( NOT a typo, we meant to write triple-header) and did not commit a single error behind the plate during game 1, game 2, or game 3 of that historic triple header! The box:

In 1945, The Baseball Writers' Association of America did not elect any players to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. However, The Old Timers Committee selected Roger Bresnahan , Dan Brouthers , Fred Clarke , Jimmy Collins , Ed Delahanty , Hugh Duffy , Hughie Jennings , King Kelly , Jim O'Rourke , and Wilbert Robinson!
