Clemente

Roberto Clemente is one of baseball’s most iconic figures. As the first high-profile Latino player to play in MLB in the United States, Roberto's extraordinary career opened the door for generations of Latino baseball players to come. However, it is Roberto’s remarkable life off the field that defined his legacy. His fearless fight for social justice and racial equality. His fierce commitment to society's marginalized and under-represented. His sacrificial death for the victims of the 1972 Nicaraguan earthquake. This is the story of a man who showed that a life lived with passion and conviction can truly change the world. This is the story of an icon.
