23. A Few Roberto Memories
baseball legend s eldest son recalls father s courage For roberto clemente Jr.the fear was deep in his soul that his father would die that day.
Remembering Roberto The following are a few quotes, facts, and stories that have been published to honor Roberto Clemente on the 25th anniversary of his tragic death. They are in no particular order and were gathered from a variety of sources. More info is located on my Roberto Tribute Page Former Pirate GM Joe L. Brown:
"He's a shining star to many, many people. He grows and grows over time. He doesn't diminish... The sad part is that there are not enough TV pictures of him. He made so many great plays that people can only talk about. You could never capture the magnificence of the man."
  • Former baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn during his 1973 eulogy to Clemente: "He gave the term 'complete' a new meaning. He made the word 'superstar' seem inadequate. He had about him the touch of royalty." The Puerto Rican Winter League has dedicated this season to the memory of Roberto, and by league mandate, the number 21 has been retired in perpetuity and will not be worn again in the winter league by any player. Pirate owner Kevin McClatchy: "If we have a foundation with Roberto Clemente's name on it, as a franchise we have a responsibility to make sure that it grows. Having kids play baseball in the inner city was important to Roberto Clemente, and we're going down that same road."

Baseball Almanac "I never saw him (Roberto Clemente) play, other than on television in the 1971 World Series, but I heard so much about him from people who did see him play. They talked about the way he played the game. That is why this award (2004 Roberto Clemente) means so much to me. It is more about making a contribution off the field instead of on the field." - Edgar Martinez S ince 1971, Major League Baseball has annually presented an award to recognize a player who combines outstanding skills on the field with devoted work in the community. In 1973, the award was named in honor of Clemente, who died on December 31, 1972 during a humanitarian mission to assist earthquake victims in Nicaragua. D uring the season, each Major League club selects a local Roberto Clemente Award recipient. The local honoree is then eligible for the national Roberto Clemente Award, which is presented annually at the World Series. T he 30 club nominees for the 2004 Roberto Clemente Award were announced on September 22 as part of Roberto Clemente Day. Roberto Clemente Day was created by Major League Baseball in 2002 as a league-wide effort to honor the memory of Roberto Clemente and recognize the local club nominees.

A member of the 3,000-hit club, Roberto Clemente was a tremendously proud man who was often misunderstood by the press and his teammates. He was criticized for refusing to play with minor injuries, despite the fact that he won four batting championships. He played on two Pirate World Series winners and became a legendary figure after his tragic death while delivering supplies to victims of the Nicaraguan earthquake in 1972.
His tragic death prompted the Hall of Fame's Board of Director's to unanimously wave the customary five year period for induction, opening the door for the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) to hold a special election on Clemente's behalf. By an overwhelming vote of 93%, Clemente became the first player of Latin American descent to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Writers dubbed him "The Great One." His friends called him "Bobby" or "Bob." Clemente was also called "Arriba" in his native Puerto Rico.

Career Batting Record Clemente originally signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers for a $10,000 bonus in 1954 and he spent the season with their top farm club. He was used sparingly, because the Dodgers were trying to hide his skills from other teams. At the time, a player who received a signing bonus could be drafted by another team if he wasn't placed on the major league roster after one season in the minors. The talent-laden Dodgers didn't put Clemente on their roster, and he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates for $4,000. Clemente became Pittsburgh's starting rightfielder during the 1955 season. He hit over .300 only once in his first five seasons, but he batted .314 with 16 homers in 1960, when the Pirates won the pennant, and he hit .310 in their seven-game win over the New York Yankees in the World Series. In the next seven years, Clemente won four batting titles, hitting .351 in 1961, .339 in 1964, .329 in 1965, and .357 in 1967. He was named the NL's most valuable player in 1966, when he hit .317 with 29 home runs and 119 RBI. After slipping to .291 in 1968, Clemente hit .345, .352, .341, and .312 in the next four seasons. Through most of his career, Clemente felt he was overlooked because of his Puerto Rican origin, and he was determined to impress the national television audience when the Pirates got into the 1971 World Series. He succeeded, batting .414 with 12 hits, including 2 doubles, 1 triple, and 2 home runs, and he made some outstanding plays in the field as Pittsburgh beat the Baltimore Orioles in seven games. Clemente easily won the most valuable player award for the series.

Roberto Clemente Award
Table of Contents
Major league baseball established a Man of the Year Award in 1971 to honor a player for humanitarian service as well as on-the field performance. Two years later, it was named the Roberto Clemente Award to honor the former Pittsburgh Pirate outfielder who had been killed on Dec. 31, 1972, in the crash of a plane carrying relief supplies to earthquake-ravished Nicaragua. In the course of the season, each major league team nominates a player for the award. The national award winner is selected from among the nominees by a panel that includes the commissioner of baseball and Vera Clemente, the widow of the Hall of Fame player. Since 2000, John Hancock Financial Services has been the title sponsor of the award. The winner receives a trophy and $25,000 is donated in his name to a charity of his choice. In addition, John Hancock donates $30,000 in the winner's name to Roberto Clemente Sports City in Puerto Rico. Top of page

Remembering Roberto Clemente on New Year’s Eve

by Mike Attiyeh
A member of the Society for American Baseball Research more info December 31, 1999 Tonight is not only New Year’s Eve and the last night of the 20th Century, but also the 27th anniversary of Roberto Clemente ’s tragic death. Though the Pittsburgh Pirate right fielder did plenty on the field to leave behind a strong legacy, it was his off-the-field contributions that touched the hearts of everyone – even if it took until the very end to realize it. Clemente, an ever-so proud black Puerto Rican, worked tirelessly to help his people and try to erase bigotry toward his race. He once said, "I work with the rich and live among the poor." Believe him! His death is how most people remember Clemente; that he sacrificed his own life to save the life of others. There is certainly honor and admiration in that. Others choose to remember his cannon arm, which helped Clemente garner 12 consecutive Gold Gloves. Others choose to remember his non-scientific swing, which netted nothing but line drives to the tune of four batting titles, 12 All-Star selections, an MVP Award and exactly 3,000 hits.

He was the 11th player in history to reach this number.
