40 years ago he died and I remember it vividly. I cried like a baby when I heard the news because he was a fine man, a good baseball player and a real ambassador for Puerto Rico.

The only reason you cried is your probation officer kicked your lying cowardly imposter butt. You ain't even old enough to have seen one of his games unless you saw one in a revue of his life.

He died while working on the Panama Canal. He was trying to get a boath through.

Sorry - I got my facts all confused and balled up. I never make a mistake so you can imagine how this has thrown me for a loop. I do know that he was one hell of a baseball player, a hitter for average and power with one hell of a right arm and speed to burn. Plus he had that charming smile and he was the toast of the town when I live in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh, is that where you started your career in law enforcement?

The above poster is a fraud, thief and a liar. He's probably a fornicator too. I've never been to Pittsburgh and I wouldn't want to.

Post #1,#4,#6 and #8 are definite fraudulent posters.
Roberto Clemente Walker (August 18, 1934 – December 31, 1972) was a Puerto Rican-American baseball right fielder who played 18 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1955 through 1972. Clemente was awarded the National League (NL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award in 1966. He was a National League All-Star for twelve seasons (15 games), received 12 Gold Glove Awards, and led the National League in batting average four times. In 1972, Clemente got his 3,000th major league hit.

Off the field, Clemente was involved in charity work in Puerto Rico and other Latin American countries, often delivering baseball equipment and food to those in need. He died in an aviation accident on December 31, 1972, while en route to deliver aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. Clemente was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame posthumously in 1973, becoming the first Latin American to be selected and one of only two Hall of Fame members for whom the mandatory five-year waiting period had been waived, the other being Lou Gehrig. Clemente is the first Hispanic player to win a World Series as a starter (1960), receive an MVP Award (1966), and receive a World Series MVP Award (1971).

That is the real story on Roberto.

Thank you, Mr. Know it All. Us bumpkins in here ain't never heard of this guy, even though he was a World Series hero, reached 3,000 hits, is in the baseball Hall of Fame and is honored outside of PNC Park with a large statue. Thanks for making sure us yokels get some education - none of us know how to copy and paste from websites.
For Sure

That was great what you posted. For along time the people of Puerto Rico thought he would come walking out of the ocean upon to the beach in Puerto Rico. He was a national hero to that country. That is no joke like the rest of these slim balls that steal monikers and post their dumb thoughts Ok
