The first authorized biography of Roberto Clemente for kids!
A unique hero, Roberto Clemente is not only famous for his impressive baseball career, but also for his generous humanitarian efforts. Nearly 40 years ago, the same year he swung his 3,000th major league baseball hit, he died in an airplane accident on his way to deliver aid to earthquake victims. His heroics on the field earned him a place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame-the first Latin American to be granted access. To coincide with the anniversaries of his untimely passing and record-breaking year, we are publishing the first authorized biography featuring never before seen photographs directly from the Clemente family.
