Roberto Clemente Jr. has plenty of his father’s personal memorabilia. He’d like others to share it and is hoping city officials in Pittsburgh will help him.
There is no shortage of Roberto Clemente collectors. The late great slugger’s bats and other equipment are held in private collections and occasionally seen at auction.
There is plenty more where that came from according to Clemente’s son Roberto Jr. He’s hoping to convert a Pittsburgh building into a museum displaying those items and celebrating the life of the Pirates’ Hall of Famer, who died in a 1972 plane crash.
