Not a Baltimore fan but always enjoyed when the Robinson brothers were on the game of the week.

Don’t remember if the ‘66 World Series was broadcast into Hawaii but loved them in the ‘70 Series.

Ever hear about his brother, Mack Robinson, Olympic champion?

Quote:
At the 1936 Summer Olympics, he was .4 seconds behind Jesse Owens. With his accomplishments overshadowed by his younger brother, Mack Robinson fought against odds and built an impressive legacy that deserves to be remembered.
