A hardnosed give-no-quarter ballplayer like another Robinson who appears later on this list (spoiler alert!), Frank Robinson gets the revenge-is-best-served-piping-hot Badass Award. Traded from the Reds to the Orioles before the '66 season (for being, at 30, too old), Robinson won the Triple Crown and led the O's to a world championship his first season in Baltimore. Needless to say, Reds owner Bill DeWitt will not be included in our forthcoming (not!) Most Badass Baseball Owners of All Time list.
