Roberto Clemente was Major League Baseball's most beloved humanitarian. Born in Puerto Rico in 1934, Clemente worked tirelessly to promote greater accessibility and equality for Latino Americans, both within baseball and outside of it. Clemente was famous for hosting baseball clinics for underprivileged youth free of charge. He also delivered significant financial aid to people in his native Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and other countries in Latin America.
A few months after reaching the exclusive 3,000 hit club, Roberto Clemente flew to Nicaragua. The country was reeling after a devastating earthquake in 1972. Clemente was traveling to Nicaragua to deliver relief and aid supplies, a further example of his devotion to humanitarianism. His plane crashed en route to Nicaragua on New Year’s Eve in 1972. Roberto Clemente died at the age of 38, fighting to help those in need.
