PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. -- Hall of Famer Frank Robinson was taken to the hospital Thursday after experiencing dizziness and an irregular heartbeat at the Major League Baseball owners' meetings, a league spokesperson confirmed.

The 75-year-old Robinson was resting comfortably at Scottsdale Memorial Hospital after one unspecified test came back negative, according to a story from MLB.com.

Robinson was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1982 after a 21-season playing career, during which he hit 586 home runs. He became the first African- American manager in baseball history and currently serves as senior vice president of baseball operations in the commissioner's office, which he re- joined after his last managerial stint, with Washington, ended in 2006.
