Although he had no money, Roberto Clemente practiced and practiced until--eventually--he made it to the Major Leagues. America! As a right-fielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates, he fought tough opponents--and even tougher racism--but with his unreal catches and swift feet, he earned his nickname, "The Great One."

But it wasn't just baseball that made Clemente legendary--he was was also a humanitarian dedicated to improving the lives of others.
