Roberto Clemente

Today is the 46th anniversary of the night we lost the great Roberto Clemente in a plane crash off the coast of his native Puerto Rico.

I'm posting this because the author of the book Clemente, David Marannis, is on Twitter today as he remembers the man who gave his life trying to help victims of a horrible earthquake in Nicaragua.

Clemente may be the best baseball book that I've ever read, and if you've never read it I suggest you go pick up a copy.

If you're on Twitter, go follow Mr. Marannis and enjoy his thoughts on the legendary ballplayer and humanitarian.

Play Ball!

  1. I've got a stack of books that I need to read. If and when I finish the stack, I'll keep this book in mind. Problem is... I'm usually spending my free time reading everyone's blog posts.
