Bruce Robinson Music Bruce Robinson's lasting legacy on the game of baseball will be his invention of the "Robbypad" in 1979. The "Robbypad", a hinged flap on the right/throwing shoulder of a catcher's chest protector, began seeing widespread use in the mid-1980s and has become a part of the game from youth leagues to the Major Leagues. One of the original two "Robbypads" resides in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

Not many baseball players can claim an affiliation with the Baseball Hall of Fame. Only one former Major League player can claim an affiliation with the Baseball Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. That person is Bruce Robinson. On August 24, 2012, Bruce performed 24 original songs with his guitar and ukulele, as a solo act, on the main stage at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.

Bruce includes his lyrics on each CD as well as having the lyrics and music available on this web site. He encourages you to read, or better yet, sing along, as you enjoy his fabulous Americana music, lyrically articulated country, blues, rock, jazz, and ballad originals.
