Modell’s Thinks Trayvon Robinson, Not Brooks Robinson, Is In Cooperstown

Modell’s, the massive sporting goods retailer, has an extensive online shop where fans can buy team merchandise that they might not be able to find at one of the chain’s brick and mortar locations. As you can see from the screencap above, someone in the data entry department has terribly mixed up their Robinsons in the Cooperstown collection.

This is not going to please the O’s fan base. Omar comin,’ yo!

To recap:

Brooks Robinson is one of the most beloved Orioles of all-time. He won 16 Gold Glove Awards. After playing his entire 23-year major league career in Baltimore, Brooksie was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown in 1983. His No. 5 is cast in aluminum on the plaza at the end of Eutaw Street at Camden Yards.

Trayvon Robinson was traded from the Mariners to the Orioles during the 2012 off-season. He has split time this year between Triple-A Norfolk and Double-A Bowie. Trayvon has yet to appear in an Orioles uniform during the regular season.

C’mon Modell’s: clean it up. At least you could have said Frank Robinson.
