Roberto Clemente – Hoorah!! USMC

I always hear people talk about Roberto about how good of a baseball player he wan and big heart. He showed loyalty, integrity and honor in and out of the baseball field. Before he was know for his abilities playing baseball and big heart Roberto Clemente was a Marine. Roberto Clemente was willing to lose his life for our freedom. Ironically he died helping others. Roberto Clemente was a United States Marine Corps.

Instead of playing winter ball in Puerto Rico during the 1958-59 off season like the rest of the league, Clemente enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, spending six years of militarycommitment as an infantryman. The rigorous conditioning and military training kept him in shape throughout the winter.
