Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"'I won the fight.' His teammates, who had seen the one-sided affair, stared questioningly. 'I had a homer and a double,' explained Robby, 'drove in one run, scored another and made a catch that robbed ( Eddie ) Mathews of an extra-base hit. We won the second game 4-0. I won the fight.' Interesting logic? Maybe so. But it is the kind of thinking that has made Frank Robinson one of the most startling men in baseball and a nostalgic carry-back to the old days of the game - the days of hard hitting and harder fielding, of bench sniping, occassional brawls and plain old cussedness. Robinson has variously been called a sorehead, a sadist and a 'black Ty Cobb .' He has been dismissed as a loafer and criticized as a viciously agressive player. Says Robinson himself, in phrases reminisecent of Cobb : 'I am not a fancy guy, not a glamour boy. I don't believe I intrigue the fans and obviously I don't interest the sportswriters. All that I am is an uncomplicated, single-minded guy. And my single-mindedness is baseball." - Ebony Magazine (September 1966, 'FRANK ROBINSON: HAWK AMONG THE ORIOLES', Page 88) [ Frank Robinson Quotes ]
