The Orioles and Robinson's family issued a joint statement on his death on Tuesday. 

The manner in which Robinson died was not specified in the announcement. 

Before their game against the Washington Nationals, the Orioles observed a moment of silence, 

and both teams lined up outside their dugouts to pay their respects. 

Before the game, people gathered around Robinson's 9-foot bronze statue inside Camden Yards. 

"Great player, great guy on the field, great guy off the field," Jim Palmer, another Orioles Hall of Famer, said, choked with emotion.
