Brooks Fans Take Note

The “human vaccuum cleaner” is being honored… 

BABE RUTH MUSEUM TO CELEBRATE BROOKS ROBINSON AT ANNUAL GALA, OCTOBER 26th

     The Babe Ruth Museum announced that its fall gala will celebrate legendary Baltimore Orioles third  baseman  and  National  Baseball  Hall  of  Famer  Brooks  Robinson.  “An  Evening with Brooks,” will take place on Monday, October 26 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in downtown Baltimore .

     Robinson  established  a  standard  of  excellence  for  modern-day  third  basemen.  He  played  23  seasons  for  the  Orioles, setting Major League career records for games, putouts, assists, chances, double plays and fielding percentage.

     A clutch hitter, Robinson totaled 268 career home runs, at one time an American League record for third basemen. He earned the league’s MVP Award in 1964 and the World Series MVP in 1970, when he hit .429 and made a collection of defensive gems.  Robinson was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983 after receiving 344 votes of 374 ballots cast  (91.98%).    

     Highly  regarded  for  his  defensive  ability,  he  was  named  as  the  third  baseman  for  the  Rawlings  50th Anniversary All-Time Gold Glove Team.  Over his career, Robinson won 16 Gold Gloves. Each year, the Babe Ruth Museum’s fall gala celebrates a significant figure or crowning achievement in Maryland sports history. 

     The evening on October 26th will begin with a VIP/Cocktail reception, followed by a program honoring Robinson.  The event will include tributes to Robinson from some special guests, heavy passed hors d’oeuvres, food stations, an open premium bar and silent auction.  

     Sponsorship opportunities for the gala range from $2,500 to $25,000, and tickets are available at either $105 for the cocktail reception and program or $55 for the program only.
