— Red Legends of Crosley Field, Tom Tsuchiya Sculptor —Playing with unparalleled intensity, Frank Robinson quickly earned a reputation for challenging pitchers, crowding the plate and charging hard around the bases. He spent the first half of his career in Cincinnati, where his powerful swing produced 324 of his 586 career home runs and 1,009 of his 1,812 career RBIs. Robinson, arguably the best player of the Crosley era, picked up the NL MVP Award in 1961 after leading the Reds to their first pennant in 21 years. The 12-time All-Star was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 1978 and the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982. His #20 was retired by the Reds in 1998.
