Roberto Clemente, Outfielder, Pittsburgh Pirates
Although not a big athlete by today’s standards at 5’11” and 175 pounds, Clemente displayed great arm strength from right field and terrific bat speed at the plate. The 15-time All-Star was the NL MVP in 1966, a four-time NL batting champ, and a Gold Glove winner an astonishing 12 times (still tied for the most ever). His earliest “conditioning sessions” entailed working alongside his father in Puerto Rico, loading and unloading trucks with sugar crops. He was also the first Latin American to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, finishing with exactly 3,000 hits and a lifetime batting average of .317.
