Remembering Roberto

Duane Rieder is the creator and curator of the Roberto Clemente Museum ­– whose mission is to preserve the increasingly arcane story of one of the greatest ballplayers of all of time who tragically died in a plane crash on a self-funded humanitarian mission to bring supplies to earthquake ravaged Nicaragua in 1972.  Duane essentially single-handedly started the museum out of his own constantly growing private collection, and today it has become a must-visit attraction in Pittsburgh from tourists to visiting MLB players alike.
