Spencer Robbins was a minor league player for 14 years who managed for four seasons - two of which as a player-manager.
His career spanned from 1948 to 1952 and from 1954 to 1962. He hit .280 with 1,577 hits and at least 151 home runs. Perhaps his best season was his first - in 1948 with the Morganton Aggies, he hit .342 with 26 home runs.
Robbins then spent many years scouting for the Twins (1963-1986).
