President,

RCJ Global Impact, LLC

The son of Roberto Clemente and brother of Luis Clemente, Roberto Clemente Jr. spent three seasons in the minor leagues. Signed by the Philadelphia Phillies in 1984, his best season came in his final campaign in 1986 when he hit .229/~.308/.257 for the Charleston Rainbows. Knee and back injuries didn't help Roberto's chances and he gave up his baseball career in 1989.

Clemente Jr. returned to Puerto Rico and helped his mother make his father's dream a reality the Roberto Clemente Sports City. In 1992, he brought the RBI Baseball program to Puerto Rico, where he won the first RBI World Series and has won 10 championships since.

Clemente Jr. decided to move to Pittsburgh to establish the Roberto Clemente Foundation in 1993 to help bring to the children of this city the RBI program when found out they had no program.

He also has worked as a baseball commentator, especially for Spanish-language audiences, but also as a guest analyst on English-language radio broadcasts when the Montreal Expos played some home games in San Juan in 2003 and 2004.

In December 2004, he was in the process of organizing an airlift of humanitarian supplies to Nicaragua in commemoration of his father's ill-fated 1972 relief mission, when the December 26 tsunami hit the Pacific rim. The natural disaster motivated him to ship the goods to affected countries in Asia.
