Former Orioles and Hall of Fame outfielder Frank Robinson said Wednesday that he has fully recovered from the dizzy spell he experienced while attending a basketball game last weekend.

"Everything checked out fine," Robinson, 76, said from his Los Angeles home. "I've had no treatment, no follow-up. I'm doing all of my regular stuff around home."

He was stricken Sunday, during a game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics at the Staples Center. Robinson received emergency care there but declined to go to a hospital.

Robinson played six years with the Orioles and led them to world championships in 1966 and 1970. He won both the Triple Crown and the American League MVP award in 1966, his first year in Baltimore after being dealt by Cincinnati in a trade considered the best in Orioles' history.

He returned to manage the Orioles from 1988 to 1991, after coaching them for six years. The team was 230-285 under Robinson.
