Vince Mariotti

Roberto Clemente Museum

Our speaker August 2 will Vince Mariotti of the Roberto Clemente Museum.  Mr. Mariotti will tell us about the man and the museum.

The Man:

Roberto Clemente was born in 1934.  Had he lived, he would be the age of many SMC members.  But he died in his 30’s.   Roberto’s record in

baseball was outstanding:   Average .317;   home runs 240;  first Hall of Fame player from the Caribbean.    Number 21 played right field for the Pirates for his entire career.  Many think his image as a humanitarian outshine his athletics.

The Museum:

Located in Engine House # 25 between the Strip and Lawrenceville. The Robert Clemente Museum tells the story.  Normally open by appointment, Vince Mariotti will give a peek inside.

Join us August 2.  Might be a good day to don your Pirate shirt or hat.
