Last September marked the 45th anniversary of Roberto’s 3,000th hit. One of baseball’s most triumphant moments, the crown jewel of baseball’s most beloved player. But for Roberto it wasn’t all about the records broken and games won. It was about his service to humanity. He once said that he wanted
“to be remembered as a ballplayer who gave all he had to give.”
His statement wasn’t specific to baseball. Roberto considered himself, first and foremost, a servant to humanity.
