Roberto Clemente was a phenomenal baseball player, but he was an even better person.
A 15-time All-Star, World Series Champion, MVP and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, Clemente was a pioneer for Latin American athletes.
He spent much of the offseason doing humanitarian work in Latin America, and was renowned for his off-the-field generosity.
On December 31, 1972, Clemente died in a plane crash while doing charity work following an earthquake in Nicaragua.
His death transcended baseball, and his legacy is still part of the game today.
Clemente was a hero in every sense of the word, and more than deserves a film that highlights his remarkable life.
