Roberto CLEMENTE

Biography

A short bio from the Helmar “This Great Game” card back: As a boy in Puerto Rico, Roberto was a soccer player before he was a baseball star. Now he wows Pittsburgh fans with his feet and his arms, as an All-Star outfielder and batting champion. Clemente rarely sees a pitch he doesn’t swing at, he’s one of baseball’s notorious bad-ball hitters. “I try to knock him down and he hits a pitch to the wall for a triple,” Dodger hurler Don Drysdale says. Clemente saves his best for the Dodgers, who lost him in the Rule 5 Draft to the Bucs. Clemente owns a career batting average over .340 against the Bums.
