1934-1972 ROBERTO CLEMENTE http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/local/morning-file/for-a-pittsburgher-in-exile-the-pirates-glory-endures-637138/ Roberto Clemente was born in Carolina, Puerto Rico on August 18th, 1934. His parents names were Louisa Walker and Melchor Clemente. His father worked as a foreman in the sugar crops. When Roberto was 16 he was recruited by a team of Puerto Rico's amateur baseball league called the Ferdinand Juncos. http://www.hispanic-culture-online.com/roberto-clemente-biography.html Not too long after he joined the Juncos, Clemente was offered a contract to be apart of the Santurce Crabbers, one of Puerto Rico's professional baseball teams. http://www.mearsonlineauctions.com/LotDetail.aspx?lotid=27612 Roberto was the youngest of 7 children. Roberto was offered an offer for the Crabbers for $500 and a new baseball glove.
After a while of playing with the Crabbers, he was noticed by a scout from the Brooklyn Dodgers. He signed with the Dodgers in 1953. Soon after, he was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates for $4,000. In November 1954, he was the first round pick in the minor league draft for the Pirates.
Then in April of 1955, he played his first major league baseball game for the Pirates! http://tommy.mlblogs.com/2011/05/11/roberto-clemente-was-a-dodger-before-he-was-a-pirate/ In 1960, the Pirates won the World Series! They again won the World Series in 1971! Roberto was named the series’ MVP. http://baseballpacific.blogspot.com/2013/01/roberto-clemente-walker.html http://morehardball.blogspot.com/2009_10_01_archive.html In 1972, Roberto got his 3,000th hit with the Pirates versus the New York Mets http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/page/Roberto-Clemente-bat/enduring-mystery-roberto-clemente-bat http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/page/Roberto-Clemente-bat/enduring-mystery-roberto-clemente-bat Roberto receiving his 3,000th hit ball. http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/page/Roberto-Clemente-bat/enduring-mystery-roberto-clemente-bat He was the first Latino player, and to date he is one of 28 overall to accomplish this record! One of Roberto's main obstacles was overcoming racism. The team had to overcome too that their best player was a colored person. At that time there were restaurants and motels that refused to serve blacks. The black and Latino players would have to get the white players to get their food for them. They would then eat their meals on the team bus. Roberto played in the majors for 18 years. http://onlyagame.wbur.org/2011/08/06/nation-magazine-sports-issue Roberto achieved the following:

Roberto won 4 batting titles
led the Pirates to the 1960 and '61 championships
National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) in 1967
12 Gold Glove Awards
12-time National League All-Star
1973, Clemente was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal and the first Presidential Citizens Medal
He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2002.
He was inducted into the United States Marine Corps Sports Hall of Fame in 2003.
Roberto was named a member of Major League Baseball's Latino Legends Team In 2005.
Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1973. “It is the biggest ambition in my life. I want to have three baseball fields, a swimming pool, basketball, tennis, a lake where fathers and sons can get together, all kinds of recreational sports…..It will be open to everybody. No matter who they are. And after I open the first one in Puerto Rico, I will open others. I will do this thing because this is what God meant me to do. Baseball is just something that gave me the chance to do this.” (Walker 124) “Accomplishment is something you can’t buy. Any time you have the opportunity to accomplish something for somebody who comes behind you and you don’t do it, you are wasting your time on this earth.” (Walker 122) http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=espn:8877640 In 1971, Managua, Nicaragua was hit by an earthquake that destroyed the city. There were 4 support planes, from the U.S., to go to Managua and help the victims. But three planes were stolen, and the supplies never made it there. Clemente boarded the 4th plane to go to Managua. Unfortunately, the 4th plane never made it either. In 1963, in baseball’s off season, he met Vera Cristina Zabala in Puerto Rico. On November 14, 1964, he and Vera got married. They went on to have three sons: Roberto Jr., Luis Roberto, and Roberto Enrique. There were no survivors and Roberto's body was never found. In conclusion, today, Roberto Clemente has gone down in history as one of the greatest professional baseball players of all time. He was much more than just a baseball player. He was an exceptional person on and off the field, and tried hard at everything he did; from starting off in the sugar cane fields with his father, to playing baseball on the diamond. He was a great person in all that he did and goes down in history as such. http://blackandgoldworld.blogspot.com/2010/09/pirates-rookie-credits-roberto-clemente.html http://mccvelorution.wordpress.com/page/2/ Roberto's statue today outside PNC park.
