Baseball in San Juan
Does the name Roberto Clemente ring a bell? The late, great star of the Pittsburgh Pirates, who died in a 1972 plane crash delivering supplies to Nicaraguan earthquake victims, was born near San Juan and got his start in the Puerto Rican pro leagues. Many other Puerto Rican stars have played in the U.S. major leagues, including the brothers Roberto Alomar and Sandy Alomar Jr.; and their father, Sandy Alomar. Three players have been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame: Clemente, Roberto Alomar, and Orlando Cepeda.
