Rockwell portrait

Former Orioles third baseman and Baseball Hall of Fame member Brooks Robinson is the only major-league player ever painted by Norman Rockwell. The painting, titled "Gee Thanks, Brooks!", is owned by Robinson. Robinson strikes a similar pose as the painting as he signs autographs for fans.Baltimore Sun photo by Kenneth K. Lam
