Profile America — Sunday, October 12th. Hispanic Heritage Month ends on Wednesday, but with baseball playoffs under way, it fits the occasion to recognize one of the game's greatest pioneering players. Roberto Clemente of the Pittsburgh Pirates was the first Hispanic to be elected to the baseball Hall of Fame. Born in Puerto Rico, he was voted Most Valuable Player in 1966 in the National League, won four league batting championships, and was the 11th player to record 3,000 hits. Clemente was noted for his humanitarian work, and died on New Year's Eve in 1972 in a plane crash while carrying aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. When Clemente played in the 1960s and early '70s, there were around 9 million Hispanics in the U.S. Today, there are 54 million, and about 25 percent of major league ballplayers are Hispanic. Profile America is in its17th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
