Roberto Clemente was the first Latin American and Caribbean player to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame soon after his untimely death in 1972. He used to involve himself in charity work in Latin American and Caribbean countries during off-seasons, and had decided to deliver aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua himself after learning that the previous three flights had been diverted by corrupt government officials. The ill-fated flight that he was on was overloaded and understaffed, and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean soon after takeoff. We have gathered some of his remarkable quotes delivered during interviews and award acceptance speeches. He mostly talked about his obsession about baseball and his intention to do good for people.
