Roberto Clemente: A Hero Beyond the Baseball Diamond - Roberto's Dream

"Roberto's Dream", Sports Park, Roberto Clemente Park, Fair Use.

Roberto turned his thoughts to a dream he had had for years.  He hoped to build a sports city in Puerto Rico where the poor children of his country could learn the values of good citizenship though the power of sports.  He explained:

“My biggest ambition in life is to build a place with three baseball fields, a swimming pool, basketball, tennis, a lake where fathers can bring their sons and they can fish together, all kinds of recreational sports.  It will be open to everyone.  I will do this thing because it is what God meant me to do”.

It was a noble and inspiring dream. He planned to commit the rest of his life to seeing it become a reality.

 But fate once again had other plans for Roberto Clemente.
