ROBERTO CLEMENTE AWARD
Since 1971, Major League Baseball has presented annually an award that recognizes a player who best exemplifies the game of baseball through sportsmanship, community involvement and positive contributions to his team. In 1973, following the tragic death of Roberto Clemente, the award was named to honor the man whose spirit and goodwill will always be remembered. The 12-time All-Star and Hall of Famer was killed in a plane crash in 1972 delivering food and medical supplies to earthquake victims of Nicaragua. The award recognizes those individuals who truly understand the value of helping others. A panel of baseball dignitaries, including Vera Clemente and Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig, annually selects the winner from a list of 30 candidates, one from each Major League Club. These local winners are announced in September during Roberto Clemente Day. The winner of the national Roberto Clemente Award is announced during a pregame ceremony at the World Series. Past winners include Jamie Moyer, Jim Thome, Curt Schilling, Al Leiter, Tony Gwynn, Willie Mays, Ozzie Smith, Cal Ripken, Jr. and John Smoltz. Carlos Delgado of the New Yorks Mets was the 2006 national recipient.
