BALTIMORE (AP) - Brooks Robinson says he’s on the road to recovery after the Hall of Fame third baseman was hospitalized with a fever and infection.

Robinson was scheduled for an outpatient procedure at Greater Baltimore Medical Center on Thursday, but on Wednesday night he became ill. In a statement, Robinson says doctors chose to admit him early “to aggressively treat the infection.”

He says he is “responding well to antibiotics.”

The 73-year-old Robinson did not provide details of his illness and has asked for privacy in the matter. He says he looks “forward to a full recovery.”

Robinson, who was treated for prostate cancer in 2009, says he remains cancer-free. He played for the Baltimore Orioles from 1955-77 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1983.
