The Clemente Museum offers the opportunity to learn about Roberto Clemente, famed Pittsburgh Pirates player and humanitarian, but also about Pittsburgh history.
The Clemente Museum is dedicated to preserving the legacy of “The Great One,” as his fans affectionately called him. The Pittsburgh Pirates drafted Clemente in 1954 and he rose to become the greatest baseball player of his time. During this period, the struggle for social justice had reached every part of our country, and every ballpark. He and many other athletes had to bear the burdens of racial and cultural prejudices, no matter what their abilities were on the field.
Additionally, Clemente dealt with language barriers, which lead to the media making a mockery of his intelligence. He faced those burdens with dignity, pride and an enduring empathy for those less fortunate. As for his critics, he simply silenced them with his amazing bat and miraculous arm.
