1955 HEADLINE: Brooks Robinson To Make His Debut For The Orioles

On this day in 1955, Brooks Robinson made his big-league debut.

At the age of 18, Robinson and his Baltimore Orioles teammates hosted the Washington Senators.  And in front of a crowd that barely crossed 5,000 spectators, Robinson performed like a veteran.

On the day, Brooks went 2-for-4, collecting two singles and an RBI.  His efforts helped lead the team to a 3-1 victory.

Welcome to the big leagues, Mr. Robinson.  Happy Anniversary!!!

  1. One of the classiest players baseball to ever play the game. He had a wicked glove too.

  2. Ahh, Brooks … simply amazing! Last week, during one of the Orioles telecasts, Jim Palmer said that watching Manny Machado at third this season was just like watching Brooks. Jim is careful with such praise, so I think he truly meant it. We’ll see if Manny stands the test of time (I sure hope so!). But, in the meantime … I never got to see Brooks play, so I guess getting the opportunity to watch Manny at 3rd will have to be “close enough.”

    • Peacefulhands9- it’s nice to see another fan that appreciates what Robinson brought to the field.

      I, too, was too young to witness him play, but if it was anything like watching Machado – he was superb!!!

      Welcome to 30-year old cardboard!!
