Hall of Famer Hurt After Fall

Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson is said to be "resting comfortably" after suffering a fall this past weekend at a Florida casino.

According to witnesses, The Baltimore Orioles legend was seated on an elevated stage during a baseball dinner at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino when he leaned backward and fell about six feet to the floor.

Robinson fractured his shoulder in two places. Paramedics treated the 74-year-old and transported him to a nearby hospital.

No word as to whether or not the ghost of Anna Nicole Smith is what forced Robinson off the stage.  But I don't mind starting the rumor.

The 16-time Gold Glove winning thirdbaseman was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame 1983.  This past October, the Orioles unveiled a statue of Robinson to coincide with the 20th anniversary of Camden Yards.
