"I loved baseball more than anything," said Roberto Clemente, the first great ballplayer from Puerto Rico. Despite physical pain from injuries and emotional pain from the racism of the 1960s, Clemente wowed major-league fans with his amazing fielding, throwing, and hitting. Equally noteworthy was his commitment to others. If you have a chance to help and you don't, he said, then "you are wasting your time on this earth." The life of this beloved athlete and humanitarian was cut tragically short when his plane crashed en route to helping earthquake victims in Nicaragua.
