On September 30th, 1971, in his last at-bat of the regular season, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Robert Clemente joined major league baseball's magic circle with his 3000th hit. Just three months later, he was dead, killed in an earthquake relief plane crash. As this moving book by his family shows, this Puerto Rican-born star was a Latin trailblazer in many ways: the first Latin player elected to the Hall of Fame; the first to win a World Series title as a starter; the first World Series MVP and an MVP Award. A fitting tribute to one of the most exciting players of our lifetime. Editor's recommendation.
