Frank Robinson was the first player to win the MVP Award in both leagues, and while he was a major force in the Baltimore Orioles push to their first World Series Title, he was actually a better player during the ten seasons he was a Cincinnati Red.

Robinson, a first ballot Hall of Fame inductee, won the 1956 Rookie of the Year, which would be followed up by a MVP win in ’61.  Robinson blasted 324 Home Runs with a sweet Slash Line of .303/.389/.554, en route to winning three Slugging Titles.  Amazingly, Frank Robinson would be traded to Baltimore for returns that were not close to what he would accomplish over the next six seasons in Baltimore.  Imagine how much more potent the Reds offense would have been in the late 60’s and early 70’s!
