Many people believe that Roberto Clemente was the greatest right-fielder ever to play baseball. He was equally famous for his commitment to helping people in need. Anytime you have an opportunity to make things better and you don't, then you are wasting your time on this Earth, he said. Even as Clemente skyrocketed to the major leagues, his heart stayed close to his Puerto Rican home. Author Carin T. Ford also reveals why the beloved baseball hero with millions of fans often had a rocky relationship with reporters. The highs and lows of Clemente's action-packed life and tragic death make a fascinating biography.
