An Evening With Brooks Robinson

Saturday, June 27, 2020 at 8:00 pm

Presented by Key West Production and FAME

The Baltimore Orioles legendary 3rd baseman, Brooks Robinson, will speak at the Gordon Center and share stories about his remarkable career and reminisce about the games and players who made it truly memorable. Brooks' remarks will by followed by a question and answer period with the audience. 

From the time Brooks Robinson made his Major League debut in 1955, until he retired as a player in 1977, he added a new dimension to the third base position. He played his entire 23-year major league career for the Orioles. Known as "The Human Vacuum Cleaner" it's been said that he was the best third baseman to ever play the game. During his tenure, the Baltimore Orioles had the best record in all of baseball. Brooks played in 18 consecutive All-Star games and won 16 consecutive Gold Glove awards. When he retired, Brooks held nearly all the records for a third baseman in Major League Baseball. Elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983, he received nearly 92% of the votes. A higher percentage that even Joe DiMaggio or Mickey Mantle received when they were elected. Brooks was a true gentleman both on and off the field. It's been said that some players get candy bars named after them, but people named their children after Brooks Robinson. 

There will be a private, ticketed only pre-show Meet & Greet available, limited to 75 people. Meet & Greet ticket holders will have the opportunity to not only meet the legendary third baseman, but to have one item signed by Brooks Robinson.
