Not just another great baseball player
Apropos of absolutely nothing legal, there was a great American Experience on PBS last night about Roberto Clemente, the legendary right fielder who died in a plane crash in 1972 while en route to help earthquake victims in Nicaragua. In addition to being a great baseball player (3000 hits!) and a humanitarian, he was a role model and a barrier breaker (e.g. first Latino inducted into the Hall of Fame, although, sadly, it was posthumously). The American Experience is really worth catching if you have the chance. In the meantime, if you want to read more about the show, Brian Lambert over at Lambert to the Slaughter had a nice sum up yesterday.
