Brooks Robinson was hospitalized on March 31 following emergency surgery, but the 73-year-old Hall of Famer has been discharged.

According to the hospital Robinson received more than 500 get-well e-mails during his stay and the longtime Orioles third baseman issued a statement noting that he “spent countless hours reading your kind words of encouragement.”

Robinson was treated for prostate cancer in 2009 and is currently cancer-free. In an interview with the Associated Press, he said: “I am well on my way to a full recovery.”
