MLB | Clemente's Son Mirroring Father's Fateful Flight

Tue, 3 Jan 2006 10:54:16 -0800

The Associated Press reports Roberto Clemente Jr. will head to Nicaragua to distribute humanitarian aid in a trip that mirrors the one that his father, Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente, was killed in 33 years ago. Clemente Jr. will take the same amount of food, medicine and other items that his father carried during the original trip. "It's been 18 months that I had a spiritual awakening in which I communicated with dad. It was the first time that I really cried for dad ... and it was then that I understood I had to make this trip to obtain spiritual peace," Clemente said.
