Roberto Clemente

Discussion created by ggdula on Apr 10, 2013

The heroes of my youth were baseball players. The respect I gave them was equaled only by the respect I gave my parents. If you were a Pittsburgh Pirate of my youth, during the 1970's you were idolized. Roberto Clemente became the epitome of selflessness for me when he died tragically just after getting his 3000th hit. There are fewer men that I admire more than him.
