Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _______. October 4, THE lEmslDGE HERAIP 7 One of baseball's best bargains Clemente was worth it PITTSBURGH (AP) On Nov. 22, 1954, Pittsburgh Pi- ralcs paid W.OOO to draft a young, obscure Puerto Rican from the Montreal farm team of Brooklyn Dodgers. Eighteen seasons later, that reached baseball's exclusive 000-hit plateau, au achievement shared by only 10 other players in major-league baseball his- tory. Many observers link the Pi- rale coup in acquiring Cle- mente from the Dodgers to the quota system which once re-1 stricter the entry of blacks into the big leagues. The 38-year-old Clemcnle, born in Carolina, Puerto Rico, the son of a sugar cane plan- tation loreman, was signed to a free-agent contract by the Dodgers In years after Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier. were five black players on the Dodger parent club that year, and Clemente was signed to a minor-league even though it meant the risk of losing him in the draft. Though IK; batted just 143! times for a .257 average in his only season at Montreal, Cle- mente caught the eyes of. Pi- rate scouts. Pittsburgh finished last in the National League that year and made the 20-year-old outfielder its No. 1 choice in the draft, Since then, Clemenle has compiled a .318 lifetime aver- age, won four batting titles and hit .300 a dozen times. He has more hits, runs-batlcd-in and total bases than any playec in Pirate history. Beyond the statislics, Cle- menle is Identified by his free- swinging, unorthodox batting style and his mannerisms at the plate. Trie continuous neck move- ment, side to side to work out the kinks, extensive land- scaping around home plate, and taking the first pitch have be- come Clemente trademarks. Ciemente's career total of 540 home runs is far below similar totals for Willie Mays and Hank Aaron Uie only other active players with more than hils.
