Twenty twenty-two marks 50 years since baseball great Roberto Clemente made his final appearance in the MLB. Today, MLB The Show honors the life and legacy of this legend, both on and off the diamond, during the 2nd annual September 15th Roberto Clemente Day celebration. Clemente was a 2-time World Series Champion, and the first player from the Caribbean/Latin America to win the World Series MVP Award in 1971. A 15-time All-Star, Roberto was the National League (NL) MVP in 1966, the NL batting leader in 1961, 1964, 1965, and 1967, and a recipient of the Golden Glove Award for 12 consecutive years from 1961 to 1972. Maintaining a .300+ batting average over 13 seasons, Clemente had 3,000 hits during his time in the Major Leagues.
