    The greatest accomplishments of his career as a Giants executive included his being the driving force behind the current Giants stadium, and also being influential in keeping the Giants in San Francisco when Bob Lurie put the team up for sale in 1992, and preventing the ballclub from moving to St. Petersburg.

    Hall of Famer Frank Robinson was pronounced dead today at age 83. Cause of death was bone cancer.

    Robinson was the NL ROY in 1956, the NL MVP in 1961, and the AL MVP in 1966. His career was mainly as a superstar for the Reds and Orioles, although he also played briefly with the Dodgers, Angels and Indians.

    It was with the Tribe that he became MLB's first black manager in 1975, after several seasons of experience managing in the Puerto Rican Winter league. He had later managing stints with the Giants, Orioles, and Expos/Nationals.
