Phillies to honor the late Robin Roberts

We've lost another great one.

Phillies great Robin Roberts, one of the best Phillies pitchers of all-time, passed away today at the age of 83. The Hall of Fame pitcher holds numerous Phillie pitching records, including most complete games and innings pitched and he is second to Steve Carlton in wins. Roberts was still occasionally active with the Phillies and often spent time with the current team.

To honor Roberts, the Phillies will hang his jersey in the dugout and wear a patch with the number 36 on it for the rest of the season.

RIP, Robin Roberts.
