Summary

Summary

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Maraniss penned this stirring biography of Puerto Rican baseball star Roberto Clemente. Before his untimely demise in a plane crash on New Year's Eve, 1972, while rendering aid to earthquake-ravaged Nicaragua, Clemente had achieved allstar status playing for the Pittsburg Pirates. Pushing past the myths, Maraniss memorializes Clemente as a quiet, pensive hero of the people. "Maraniss deftly balances baseball and loftier concerns like racism ..." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
