Uncle Robbie and his Dogs

Dated a little over a year before he passed away, Wilbert "Uncle Robbie" Robinson sits on his porch with his trusted dogs below. It is a Wide World Press Photo from 1/7/1933. By this time he had retired from the game. Robinson managed the Brooklyn team from 1914 to 1931, and was so beloved they nicknamed the team the Robins in his honor. He was elected into the Hall of Fame in 1945.
