Roberto Clemente was more than just a Puerto Rican Major League baseball player with the Pittsburgh Pirates – he was a Humanitarian. He really cared about the inequities of life. That is why he, rich and successful himself, was killed in an airplane crash, bringing food and supplies to Nicaragua immediately after an earthquake there. During his playing days for Pittsburgh (1955-1972) he was a 12-time All-Star and 4-time National League batting champ. He also was the league’s 1966 MVP. Besides the individual awards, I remember Clemente as being a 5-tool player (hit for average, power, had good speed, throwing and defense). He could do it all. He got his 3,000th hit in his last regular season at bat (a double). Roberto Clemente was inducted into baseball’s “Hall Of Fame” in 1973, in a special election due to his untimely passing.
