Hall of Fame player and former Washington Nationals' Skipper Frank Robinson, who guided the Nats through their first two seasons upon baseball's return to the nation's capital in 2005-2006, leading the Nationals to their best finish since returning to D.C. at 81-81 in '05 after managing the Montreal Expos from 2002-2004, was reportedly hospitalized earlier this morning in Arizona with what USA Today baseball writer Bob Nightengale reported on Twitter (@BNightengale) was an, "irregular heart beat and dizziness." Robinson was in Arizona for the Owners Meetings, and Los Angeles Times sports writer Bill Shaikin has since noted on Twitter (@BillShaikin) that the veteran of 21 MLB seasons was "was alert and conscious" when he was taken to nearby Scottsdale Memorial Hospital.

Mr. Robinson, 75, has been working with Major League Baseball and the Commissioner's Office since 2006, and is now serving as the Senior VP of Major League operations, "overseeing the umpires, security and on-field baseball operations," as MLB.com's Barry M. Bloom noted in an article on Robinson's hospitalization entitled, "Frank Robinson hospitalized after dizzy spell", in which Mr. Bloom reports that MLB officials told him Robinson, "appeared to be stable and he was being taken to the hospital for more tests."

More information on Mr. Robinson when it is available. Federal Baseball.com's thoughts and prayers are with the Hall of Famer and Inaugural Nats' Skipper.
