Roberto Clemente was killed in a plane crash many years ago:
"On December 31, 1972, an airplane chartered by the professional baseball player Roberto Clemente to bring food and other relief supplies to survivors of a recent earthquake in Nicaragua crashes shortly after takeoff from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Five people were killed in the crash, including Clemente, whose body was never recovered."Like most of you, I was shocked to hear the news.
Clemente hit .317 and got # 3,000 on his last at-bat of the 1972 season. He was the MVP of the 1971 World Series and hit .318 in 5 post season series.
