Storyline

'Baseball's Last Hero: 21 Clemente Stories' blends baseball with a redemptive story of sacrifice. In the words of the Gospel of John, "Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends..." These words from scripture inspire Puerto Rican baseball superstar Roberto Clemente to make a difference, to die giving. The film traces the life of the greatest right fielder of all time, as he faces and overcomes the racist reporters of the Pittsburgh Press and struggles to prove his talents despite the baseball writers conspiring to cheat him out of his due recognition. Baseball's Last Hero is a love story at his core. Roberto meets the love of his life, Vera, and they create a family, a safe haven for Roberto who is plagued by nightmares and a growing sense he will die young. Roberto's love for the poor compels him on a mission of mercy. On New Year's Eve 1972, following eighteen magnificent seasons in the major leagues, Roberto Clemente dies a hero's death, killed in ...

Great movie for all ages
1 October 2013 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is another proof that you don't need a lot of money to produce a good, meaningful and very accurate movie for all ages. The story of Roberto Clemente, one of the greatest baseball players of all times, is presented in a very unique way. Through 21 (yes 21!) simple and well acted segments, we fully understand and have a complete picture of who this man was and how much difference he made in the world. It is a bit of sadness, a bit of happiness and a lot to think about it. The movie is an instrument to learn about the good qualities and basic values sometimes missing in this world. The stories comprise many years and many places, from Puerto Rico to Pittsburgh, where we can see a Clemente growing as a player and as a human being. We see through his eyes the good and the bad in this world and how regardless of his experiences, he is always focused and very dedicated to his career and to others surrounding him. The way he left us is just an example of his whole life. Great job!
