In 1977, Dewey Robinson was a 19th round draft choice by the Chicago White Sox out of Southern Illinois University (really Swede, he really did go there). He made his first appearance for the Sox in 1979. In 30 games over 3 seasons, Robinson compiled a 2-2 record.
Since 1997, Robinson had been with the Houston Astros organization in a variety of roles. Unfortunately, Robinson did not survive the Cecil Cooper firing. Robinson will surely be employed in a baseball capacity somewhere in 2010, but I don't know where yet.
Just after I talked to Cooper in Houston, Robinson walked right to us. I took my opportunity to talk to one of the pitchers from my White Sox youth. It was kind of funny, as he seems to recognize Global Traveler (can it be?). Also, we got to discuss Ross Baumgarten, another White Sox from my youth.
