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.
