During the early part of his Hall of Fame career with the Reds, Robinson faced Koufax more times than he’d face all but six other pitchers in his career, and tied Henry Aaron, Felipe Alou, and Ernie Banks for the most home runs off the legendary lefty, with seven. In the 1966 World Series, Robinson tripled, walked, and scored twice against Koufax in Game 2 of the Orioles’ sweep. But after the 1971 season, Robinson joined Koufax as part of the Dodger family, coming over from Baltimore with Pete Richert in exchange for Doyle Alexander, Bob O’Brien, Sergio Robles, and Royle Stillman. After he hit 19 home runs in 103 games, Robinson was traded again, this time to the Angels, along with Billy Brabarkerwitz, Bill Singer, Mike Strahler, and Bobby Valentine, for Ken McMullen and Andy Messersmith. Robinson hit 64 more homers after leaving the Dodgers to wrap up his career at 586.
