The 2-2 to May. Swing, ground ball, third-base side. Brooks Robinson's got it, throwing from foul ground toward first base. It is ...IN TIME!

Nope. From the "NumerOlogy" site:

The scant few to wear #5 before Brooks got a hold of it were second baseman Bobby Young (1954-1955) and third baseman Hank Majeski (1955), who traded places in a midseason deal with the Indians; outfielder Angie Dagres (1955); and infielders Bobby Adams (1956) and Grady Hatton (1956). It's interesting to note that Adams spent the early part of his career backing up Hatton in Cincinnati; a few weeks after the Orioles released Adams in 1956, Hatton joined the team and took Adams' uniform number.
