Brooks Robinson statue to be unveiled

BALTIMORE -- A statue of Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson will be unveiled this weekend outside Baltimore's Camden Yards.

The 9-foot bronze statue being unveiled Saturday depicts Robinson at third base preparing to throw out a runner at first. A 4½-foot pedestal will have panels describing Robinson's career.

Robinson played his entire 23-season career with the Orioles, retiring in 1977, and is considered one of the greatest defensive third basemen in history. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1983.
