It’s hard to believe that a prospect in the Baltimore Orioles system did not know who Frank Robinson is, but alas that is the case for Josh Hart.
Robinson came to speak to the Orioles on Monday and when Hart admitted to Buck Showalter that he did not know who Frank Robinson was he was given a homework assignment. Showalter requested a one-page paper on Robinson.
Buck asked O's farmhand Josh Hart if he knew who Frank was. He didnt, so Buck told him he wanted a one-page report on him by tmrw. #Orioles

Robinson is a baseball hall of famer who won a rookie of the year award and two league MVPs. Most recently he served as the manager of the Washington Nationals. During Robinson’s tenure with the Orioles the organization won two World Series championships.
The 19-year-old Hart was the 37th pick of last years draft.
