Baseball great Roberto Clemente's talent and inimitable style drew legions of fans, but as this AMERICAN EXPERIENCE production reveals, he was more than an exceptional baseball player. He was also a committed humanitarian who challenged racial discrimination and worked for social justice.

A Baseball player and a Humanitarian.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Roberto Clemente DVD:

It's hard to believe its been 39 years since Roberto Clemente was taken from us in a plane crash. Yet his spirit, his humanitarianism and overall decency remain equal to his achievements on the baseball field. This American Experience DVD is the quintessential biography of this legend. In spite of racial attitudes of the time, Roberto Clemente rose far above it all. He did not have to prove himself a man to anyone. That he was. Yet he proved himself a gifted ballplayer who brought pride not to himself, but to Puerto Rico, the Nation, Latin America and baseball itself. Yet beyond this, he was color-blind to race, creed or national origin. When the 1972 earthquake struck Managua, Nicaragua, the true essence of who Roberto was emerged. Borders were no obstacles to his reaching out to those suffering and in need. That is how he lived and to the very end. He will never be forgotten on and off the baseball field.

Moving tribute to a real American hero.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Roberto Clemente DVD:

As a child I learned to idolize Clemente. It's enlightening as an adult to rediscover that here was a man who truly deserved my youthful admiration. He was simply the best, both as an athlete and a human being. The documentary is excellent - it should have been three hours long.
