Synopsis

Roberto Clemente (Revised Edition) by Stew Thornley

Roberto Clemente grew up dreaming of playing professional baseball in the United States. By the time he was out of high school, it looked like his dream might just come true. Clemente was drafted by a major league team and headed north. He had to overcome a language barrier, racism, and segregation along the way. But he didn't let these challenges affect his top-notch performance on the field. His career was cut short when he died in a tragic plane crash while bringing aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. Follow this heavy hitter on his amazing journey to stardom and success.
