Annotation In 1972, following eighteen superb seasons in the major leagues, Roberto Clemente died a hero's death in a plane crash as he attempted to deliver emergency supplies to Nicaragua after a devastating earthquake. Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss brings him back to life in a book capturing both the myth and the real man - a ballplayer who paved the way and set the highest standard for the many Latino players who followed. This is far more than just another baseball book: Roberto Clemente was that rare athlete who rose above sports to become a symbol of larger themes.
