4. Brooks Robinson– 268 home runs
Even in 2019, Brooks Robinson, now 82 years old, continues to be a main attraction at Camden Yards and a beloved member of the Birdland community. While his 16 Gold Glove Awards are phenomenal, we’re highlighting his 268 career home runs in an Orioles uniform, good enough for fourth on the all-time franchise list.
His stat page is always a beautiful site, consisting of 23 years worth of numbers, all compiled while playing for just one franchise. An 18-time All-Star, two-time World Series champion, World Series MVP, an MLB Hall of Famer, and unquestionably one of the most impressive players in Orioles history, Robinson was never known for his power, but 23 years of baseball will put you at or near the top of many lists.
Robinson eclipsed 20 home runs just six times, collecting a career-high 28 in 1964, his MVP season. He hit only 34 home runs over his final six seasons, but continued to flash the leather, extending his 16-year Gold Glove streak through his age-38 season.
