Frozen shrimp and What's My Line[edit]

Roberts was also the president of a frozen shrimp company and appeared on an episode of WML (1/13/57).

Could someone write a little bit about this for this article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.168.128.50 (talk) 10:12, 20 October 2008 (UTC)


Basketball[edit]

The Robin Roberts All-Stars was a touring basketball team. Roberts was a player on the team. It played against the Harlem Globetrotters in 1954.96.248.108.114 (talk) 03:01, 1 April 2011 (UTC)Lestrade

please clarify regarding the Braves[edit]

I find this: >Roberts was the only pitcher in major league history to defeat the Braves franchise in all three cities that the team has been based in: Boston, Milwaukee, and Atlanta.

Did he do this as a member of the visiting team in those cities, or did he do this against the Braves at those various times (i.e. before the move to Milwaukee, then during the Braves' being based in Milwaukee, then after the move to Atlanta)? In the latter case, it wouldn't matter where those victories were (at the Braves' home field or away from there). Do you understand what I am saying? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.63.16.20 (talk) 15:49, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
