Get a load of that, Frank Robinson, who joined the MLB in ’56, the same year Jackie Robinson retired, set the rookie record with 38 home runs in a season, only to die on the 38th day of the year at age 83. It fits with where he went to school, Xavier.
Xavier = 38 / 83
-It goes with him finishing his career in his 42nd year of life
-Jackie = 42
-Slavery = 42
-Jesuit = 42
As a Cincinnati Red for the majority of his career, he was put in the Hall of Fame in ’82, the same year the Bengals went to their first Super Bowl.
Cincinnati, Ohio = 82
Loyola = 82
And keep in mind he retired in ’76.
Tiger = 76
Now they’re back in Super Bowl 56, in the Year of the Tiger.
For one last point, he died in LA, where Super Bowl 56 is, on his 161st day of his age. That connects to Phi and the city.
Los Angeles = 161
