On an island called Puerto Rico a boy named Roberto Clemente dreamed of nothing but winning at baseball.

With no money but plenty of determination Clemente practiced on muddy fields with a glove made from a coffee sack. Little League became minor league, which turned into winter league...and, finally, he made it to the major leagues! With lightning speed, towering home runs, and grand slams, Clemente introduced himself to America.

Spare, evocative language and magnificent illustrations tell the story of a great athlete and even greater man who rose through the ranks of baseball to become one of the most admired players of all time.
