Not sure what to say?

Frank was one of my childhood heroes. My buddies and I used to wait around after the games at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore just to get his autograph. He was always gracious, well dressed and classy as hell. I pray peace to his family and all who loved him.

Rip Frank fond memories

Longtime Fan RIP

My condolence to the family of Mr. Robinson may his contribution to society bring comfort
and trail blazers should be remembered for taking the lead! Rev.1:18

Please accept my deep expressions of sympathy. May the loving memories you've shared continue to warm your heart. Psalms 116:15

May the Lord comfort the family of Mr. Robinson during this time of sorrow. I was fortunate to meet him at Coors Field in 2005 when he managed the Nationals team. A gentleman and a true class act and one of the greatest baseball players ever. Thank you Frank.......

I met Frank when he was honing his executive skills in the Arizona Fall League in the late '90s. I found Frank to be a warm and gracious man. He never allowed his incredible baseball accomplishments get in the way of personal friendships. Rest in peace, my friend; rest in peace.
