Frankie's telling a tale - head to head, Robinson's record against various HOF pitchers is a mixed bag (as I suspect most are - they're HOF'ers too!).
Here's the chart against pitchers presently in the Hall of Fame.
BTW, Frank is right - not many batters had a lot of luck with Koufax, although Hank Aaron and Willie Mays did the best against. Robby was one of only three batters to hit seven HR's off Koufax.
And check out Pete Rose down near the bottom vs Sandy.
