At the young age of 17, Roberto was playing for the Santurce Cangrejeros in the Puerto Rican Winter League where he attracted legions of big-league scouts because of his hitting, fielding, and throwing ability. 

He signed with the Dodgers for $10,000, but never got to play a single game in Brooklyn or Los Angeles. In the 1960's, however, no other player dominated the entire decade like Roberto Clemente did. 

No other Latin American has ever achieved the numbers and recognition like Clemente did. But even though with his stellar, consistent play, Clemente thought the fame achieved was all too slow in coming as it always seemed for players of Hispanic background.

In 2002, Major League Baseball's Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig announced that Sept. 18 will be known as "Roberto Clemente Day."
