Baltimore Orioles prospect Josh Hart apparently didn't know who Hall of Famer Frank Robinson was when he visited the team at Spring Training on Monday.

The 19-year-old probably knows who Robinson is by now, thanks to O's manager Buck Showalter.

"He was coming down the hall and I was walking Frank out of the locker room. I go, 'Hold on a second, Frank. Josh, do you know who this is?'" Showalter explained to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports. "He says, 'No,' and I said, 'OK, by this time tomorrow I want a page on Frank Robinson. "I said, 'You go home, you research it and you come back tomorrow and have it on my desk. Frank got a kick out of that."

On Tuesday, Hart told Kubatko that he wrote the one-page report and will give it to Showalter next time he sees him.
