Hall of Fame pitcher Robin Roberts is best known for his many years with the Philadelphia Phillies where he won 234 games and was an All-Star in seven of those 14 seasons. After his long tenure with the Phillies, Roberts joined the Baltimore Orioles in 1962, where he would spend another three-plus seasons. Despite being in his mid-to-late 30’s, Roberts was solid in Baltimore, combining to go 42-36 with a 3.06 ERA. Roberts’ last full season in Baltimore was in 1964, where he finished with a 13-7 record and 2.91 ERA in 25 starts.
