We invite all schools to submit any work done by students on Clemente for us to display for 21 days at a place to be determined.

Participants have a chance to get special gifts including NY Mets and NY Yankees game tickets.

    Roberto Clemente’s name will always be associated with the greats such as Jackie Robinson, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams etc.. Not only for his skills but for his humanitarian achievements as well. #Retire21

    #RETIRE 21. Roberto Clemente was one of the most important figures my father used to teach me about national pride, respect for others, sacrifice and success. He is a motivation to everyone regardless of race, religion or ethnicity.

    This Memorial Day I attended a Knights of Columbus Little League Tournament in Westfield, New Jersey. Guess who the tournament was dedicated to? Roberto Clemente. Not one Latino kid, or family in this little town and they dedicate the tournament to Clemente, now that’s why we believe that number 21 needs to be retired from all of baseball.
