Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson remains hospitalized in Florida with a shoulder injury following a freak fall from a stage.

Robinson fractured his scapula in the fall, which occurred on Friday night during a player reception in Hollywood, Fla. before the annual Joe DiMaggio Legends Game.

Robinson was sitting at a table on a raised stage that had a curtain behind it. He leaned against the curtain, thinking there was a wall behind it.

There was no wall, and Robinson subsequently tumbled backward off the stage and landed awkwardly on his back, the Palm Beach Post reported.

The 74-year-old Robinson did not receive a head injury, his representative, Diane Hock, said Monday. Robinson is receiving
treatment in a Florida hospital, Hock said.
