Bill Robinson Passes

The former Marlins coached passed away on Sunday.

Bill Robinson, a 16-year major-leaguer and Marlins' hitting coach from 2002-2005, died Sunday in Las Vegas. The minor league hitting coordinator for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Robinson was working with the organization's Pacific Coast League affiliate there.

Samson handled the official statement for the Marlins organization.

On behalf of the Marlins organization, team president David Samson expressed sadness over the sudden loss, saying: "Not only was he a big part of the Florida Marlins' 2003 World Series champion team, but also he was a huge part of the entire major league baseball family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Mary, and his entire family."

Rest in Peace, Bill.
