    Frank Robinson is legend of American baseball. A member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, he played for 21 seasons and is the only player in Major League Baseball history to with the Most Valuable Player Award in both leagues. In 1975 he became the first African-American manager in major league history, and has since amassed over 1,000 wins as a manager, and has been active in Major League Baseball for the past 51 seasons.

    Here in Washington, DC, he is beloved as the first manager of the Washington Nationals, a team which was moved to the city by Major League Baseball only 2 seasons ago. Robinson was given his current job by the commissioner of baseball, but now that the team has it's ownership in place and is building a long-term plan, they informed the 71-year old Robinson yesterday that this will be his last season as manager (the season ends in 2 days).
