SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Josh Hart needed a history lesson at spring training.
The outfielder, selected 37th overall in last June's amateur draft, was visiting Baltimore's major league spring training camp on Monday when manager Buck Showalter introduced him to Hall of Famer Frank Robinson. Showalter asked Hart if he knew who Robinson was. The 19-year-old did not.
Showalter has embraced Orioles history in his time as the team's manager and wanted to teach Hart a lesson, so he asked him to write a paper on the Robinson. Hart complied by Tuesday's deadline.
