Roberto Clemente
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Roberto Clemente was born August 18, 1934. Roberto was the youngest of four children. He was very athletic when he was little. He liked to do track and field. He was very good at running short races. These weren't his favorite activities though. What Roberto really wanted to do was play baseball.
 
2     In 1954, the Pittsburgh Pirates picked Roberto to play baseball for them. He would play baseball for eighteen years. He started in 1955 and his last season was in 1972. He would stay with the Pirates for the entire time.
 
3     In 1960, the Pirates made it to the World Series. It was a thrilling championship that the Pirates won in seven games. Roberto did very well during the series. He managed to get a hit in all seven games. He did so well that he earned his first trip to the All-Star game.
 
4     Clemente had shown what a great baseball player he was and would be. He won the Golden Glove award twelve times. The Golden Glove is given to a baseball player at each position. That player was the best defensive player for the year. Clemente won his for his play in the outfield. He won the Most Valuable Player award in 1966. In 1971, the Pirates won another World Series. Roberto was named the most valuable player in the series.
 
5     Roberto was very proud of where he had been born. In 1964, Roberto married his wife in Puerto Rico. They would have three children together. All three of the children were boys. Roberto insisted that all the boys be born in Puerto Rico.
