Remembering a Baseball Great, Roberto Clemente

Forty-one years ago today, on New Year's Eve, baseball lost one its best players and greatest humanitarians. Roberto Clemente of the Pittsburgh Pirates collected his 3,000th Major League hit on the last game of the 1972 season and died in a plane crash on his way to help earthquake victims in Nicaragua a few months later.

For only the second time in the history of the Hall of Fame, the five year waiting period for the induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY was waived. Clemente officially became a Hall of Famer in 1973 only months after his death.  The other waiver for the Hall of Fame was for Yankee great Lou Gehrig in 1939.  No other waivers have been issued since 1973.

Clemente remains an inspiration today and a should be a role model for every baseball player and athlete.  Bull Run Little League believes that all families should teach their children the story of Roberto Clemente and find creative ways to keep the spirit of Roberto alive.
