There's a Brooks Robinson Drive in Pikesville, and the annual state high school All-Star game played at Camden Yards is named in his honor.

His legacy in Maryland continued long after his retirement.

Anderson also said, "He can throw his glove out there and it will start 10 double plays by itself."

Many Orioles rooters who never got to see Robinson play still were able to enjoy his observations as he was part of team broadcasts.

He jockeyed between the majors and minors until July 1959, when he stuck around in Baltimore for good.

It earned him the nickname "The Human Vacuum Cleaner."

The Reds' Pete Rose said, "God sent Brooks Robinson to play third base in the '70 Series. He caught everything but a cold."

Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred called Robinson one of the greatest defensive players who ever lived.
