Summary

Roberto Clemente: Baseball Player profiles the life and career of this legendary Puerto Rican baseball player and humanitarian.

Through his outstanding career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Roberto Clemente paved the way for countless other Latin Americans in Major League Baseball. Although he dealt with racism on and off the field for many years, Clemente stayed focused on the game that motivated him since he was a young boy in Puerto Rico. Known for his powerful hitting arm and speed, Clemente led the Pirates to a memorable World Series victory in 1971 and captured several league titles in his career. Known for his compassion and charitable works, Clemente died in an airplane crash in 1972 en route to Nicaragua, where he was to deliver supplies to earthquake victims.
