Roberto Clemente - Sports - Baseball

Authors note: In a tech seminar the US speaker started his talk
with this unexpected statement of gratitude:

'Thanks Puerto Rico for giving us Roberto Clemente!'

Roberto Enrique Clemente Walker (1934 – 1972) was a Puerto Rican
from Carolina, a professional baseball right fielder who played
18 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1973,
becoming both the first Latin American and Caribbean player to be enshrined.

Clemente was an All-Star for twelve seasons, playing in fifteen All-Star Games.
He was the NL Most Valuable Player in 1966, the NL batting leader in 1961, 1964,
1965, and 1967, and a Gold Glove Award winner for twelve consecutive seasons
from 1961 through 1972.

His batting average was over .300 for thirteen seasons and he had 3,000 hits
during his major league career. He also played in two World Series championships.

Clemente is the first Latin American and Caribbean player to help win a
World Series as a starting position player (1960), to receive an NL MVP Award (1966),
and to receive a World Series MVP Award (1971).

Clemente was involved in charity work in Latin American and Caribbean countries
during the off-seasons, often delivering baseball equipment and food.

On December 31, 1972, he died in a plane crash while in route to deliver
aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. He was 38 years old.

Roberto had a consciousness as a result of his sport that all Latin American
were like one nation, thus his work in Nicaragua.

Roberto Clemente's number 21 was retired by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1973
as an homage to his name and number.

His achievements for such as short life are remarkable - we only summarize
them here.
