Summary
Baseball player Bobby Robinson was born on October 25, 1903. He grew up in Whistler, Alabama with fellow Negro Leaguers Satchel Paige and Ted "Double Duty" Radcliffe. Robinson was scouted for the Negro League while playing baseball with the semi-professional Pensacola Giants. The Giants made a trip to Birmingham, Alabama, when a scout who had been watching him for several weeks approached Robinson with a contract for the Indianapolis ABC's. Robinson made his Negro League debut in 1925. Over the course of his eighteen-year career, Robinson played with eleven Negro League teams and against many of the best Major League players. Particularly well known for his stellar defensive play, Robinson earned the nickname "The Human Vacuum Cleaner." Considered by many to be one of the greatest third basemen to ever play the game, Robinson retired from baseball in 1942. Robinson passed away on May 17, 2002, at the age of 98.
