Hall of Famer Frank Robinson needed medical attention during Sunday’s game between the Celtics and the Lakers, a witness told TMZ.

Robinson, 76, collected 2,943 hits, 586 homers and 1,812 RBI during a major league career that spanned from 1956-1976. He later managed in the majors, finishing up that portion of his career in 2006, and served in the commissioner’s office.
