Pittsburgh gifts key to the city to the clemente family

another home run....

The Louisville Slugger Museum in Louisville, KY honored Roberto Clemente on August 18, 2021 with the unveiling of a lifelike sculpture. The 6th statue added to the Museum features Clemente in a Pirates jersey from the late 1960s complete with the iconic vest and banded stirrup socks and included his U1 model Louisville Slugger bat. The statue conveys the readiness of Clemente in his batting stance, eyes glued on the pitcher, as he waits for the pitch and gets ready to swing.

The day was full of celebration and humanitarianism that included the packaging of over 7,000 meal packets that will be distributed to children in Puerto Rico in partnership with Louisville’s “Love the Hungry” and the addition of Clemente’s U1 model game-used bat to the Museum’s collection. View the gallery here to see pictures from the day’s events.

ROBERTO CLEMENTE AWARD

The Roberto Clemente Award
“Baseball’s Most Prestigious Award”
- MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred

The Clemente Award presentation is an annual Major League Baseball tradition that takes place prior to a World Series game. The award is presented every year to the player who "best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual's contribution to his team", as voted on by fans and the media.

The Clemente Foundation is further celebrating this legacy with the opening of the Roberto Clemente Hall of Fame and Museum in Puerto Rico. The exhibits will not only showcase historic artifacts and memorabilia, but are intended to inspire guests to continue Roberto’s legacy of giving back.

Your donation will play a significant role in the establishment of this unique and special Hall of Fame that will celebrate both on and off-the-field heroics by those who have followed in Roberto’s footsteps.
