Frank RobinsonFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Robinson (5/30/2007) Frank Robinson (born August 31, 1935 in Beaumont, Texas), is a Hall of Fame former Major League Baseball player. He was an outfielder, most notably with the Cincinnati Reds and the Baltimore Orioles. During a 21-season career, he became the first player to win League MVP honors in both the National and American Leagues, won the Triple crown, was a member of two teams that won the World Series (the 1966 and 1970 Baltimore Orioles), and amassed the fourth-most career home runs at the time of his retirement (he is currently sixth).During the last two years of his playing career, he served as the first permanent African-American manager in Major League history, managing the Cleveland Indians to a 186-189 record. He went on to manage the San Francisco Giants, the Baltimore Orioles, the Montreal Expos and the Washington Nationals. Los Angeles Angels of AnaheimFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Angels (7/23/2007)The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are a Major League Baseball franchise based in Anaheim, California, aligned in the Western Division of the American League. Because of the unusual length of the team's official name, most news organizations (notably the Associated Press) refer to the club as the Los Angeles Angels. The team is still referred to as the Anaheim Angels within the city of Anaheim and by many in baseball, and the California Angels by some longtime fans of the team. They are also informally known by their nickname, the Halos. The home venue of the Angels is Angel Stadium of Anaheim, located less than three miles east of Disneyland on Katella Avenue.
