Kerry Keith Robinson (born October 3, 1973 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a former American professional baseball player. Robinson started at an early age playing baseball for N.Y.A. (National Youth Association) in St. Louis MO. Robinson graduated from Hazelwood East High School and was a three sport star, and holds the highest career batting average (.517) in school history, and also for goals scored (29) on the ice hockey team. He went on to attend Southeast Missouri State University. In 1996, he led the Midwest League with a .359 batting average and 50 stolen bases (a tie) and was second in the league in hits, triples, and runs while playing for Single-A Peoria.
Robinson is known from Three Nights in August where he delivered a game-winning, walk-off home run off Chicago Cubs' relief pitcher Mike Remlinger. It was implied that the home run might be a turning point in Robinson's season and his previously marred relationship with manager Tony La Russa, but he never proved himself as a consistent, every-day player akin to Juan Pierre, to whom he had previously compared his abilities.
