Phillies great Robin Roberts dies

Phillies Hall of Fame pitcher Robin Roberts died Thursday morning at his home in Temple Terrace, Fla.

Roberts, inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1976, won 286 games in his career and holds several Phillies pitching records.

The Phillies held several tributes to Roberts before Thursday afternoon's game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park. At right, a Phillies wreath is adorned next to a statue of Roberts at the first-base entrance to the stadium.
