Frank Robinson, who became a Hall of Famer with the Reds and Orioles and was the first manager in Nationals history, was hospitalized this morning with an irregular heartbeat.
Robinson, 75, was attending Major League Baseball's owners meetings in Scottsdale, Ariz., when he began feeling dizzy. He was transported to a local hospital, and MLB spokesman Pat Courtney told reporters that Robinson indicated he felt fine after paramedics examined him.
Robinson now works for MLB as a senior vice president for operations. He managed the Expos/Nationals franchise from 2002-06, leading the team during its first two seasons in Washington.
