MLB Dot Com reports that Hall of Fame pitcher Robin Roberts passed away “from natural causes in his Temple Terrace, Fla., home. He was 83.”
Roberts was one of the greats. “In addition to the seven All-Star teams from 1950-56, Roberts led the National League in wins four times and topped the league in strikeouts twice. He won 20 games six straight seasons, including a 28-victory season in 1952. Roberts had 45 career shutouts, though he had a reputation for giving up home runs — his 505 homers allowed are the most given up by any Major League pitcher.”
