Frank Robinson is the only baseball player to win a Most Valuable Player award in both the National and American Leagues and the only African-American to manage in each league.

Robinson had an impressive rookie year with Cincinnati in 1956 when he tied Wally Berger's rookie mark for homers with 38. He led the National League with 122 runs and was named Rookie of the Year. In his 10 seasons with the Reds, he hit less than 29 homers only once and led the league in slugging percentage in three consecutive seasons (1960-62).

He won his first National League MVP award in 1961 while leading the Reds to their first pennant since 1940. After being traded to Baltimore in 1966, Robinson had his best season – he won the Triple Crown with a .316 average, 49 homers and 122 RBI - while also leading the American League in slugging percentage (.637) and runs (122). He not only won the AL MVP but also helped the Orioles to their first pennant.

During the World Series, he batted .286 and hit two homers as the Orioles swept the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was named World Series MVP. Although he never again matched his 1966 numbers, he was a central figure in three more Baltimore pennants (1969-71). Robinson also played for the Dodgers, Angels and Indians before retiring in 1976. For his career, Robinson batted .294 with 1,829 runs. His 586 career homers ranks sixth all-time.

In 1975, the Indians named him player-manager, giving him the distinction of being the first black manager in the Majors. His managing career would go on to include stints in Cleveland (1975 - 1977), San Francisco (1981 - 1984), Baltimore (1988 - 1991) and Montreal/Washington (2002 - 2006).

Robinson was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982. In 1999, he ranked Number 22 on The Sporting News list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players and was nominated as a finalist for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on November 9, 2005, by President George W. Bush. On April 13, 2007 Robinson was rewarded the first Jackie Robinson Society Community Recognition Award at George Washington University.
