EMTs came to the aid of Hall of Fame baseball player Frank Robinson during today's Los Angeles Lakers games against the Boston Celtics ... TMZ has learned. 

According to a witness, Robinson was attended to during the fourth quarter of the game. He appeared to be in stable condition after medical workers checked him out, which included taking his blood pressure.

Robinson left before the game ended, walking under his own power while being escorted out by a few EMTs.

Robinson, 76, had 586 career home runs during his playing days and is the only player to win league MVP honors in both the National and American Leagues.

Sources tell TMZ the EMTs were just being careful by escorting Robinson off the court and that Robinson just went home after the game.

Get well soon Frank. True class act and a pioneer in MLB. First African American manager and one of the best players of all time. Unfortunately many African American athletes don't follow Mr. Robinsons professionalism and are just self entitled ghetto idiots.
