"The Roberto Clemente Story" by Ana Maria Alfaro

Roberto was a good sports person. He was a famous person, a humanitarian, and a dreamer. He was a celebrity. But he cared about people, especially the children. Roberto was an excellent baseball player and a good human being. Roberto had a dream to build a Sports City, and he wanted to help the people of Nicaragua, Central America, who suffered an earthquake. He asked for donations door to door and in the radio. He did collect a lot of donations. He also went to the airport to help to load the plane. But he wanted to make sure the supplies reached the victims who needed them. So, he boarded the plane to watch over the supplies. But he never got there because the plane crashed into the sea off the coast of Puerto Rico. They never found him. The world lost a generous and loving man.
