csb: Mrs.  Gerbil isn't much of a baseball fan, but we went to PNC to see the Bucs take on the Cards one Sunday about a dozen years ago.   At the souvenir stand I bought her  small wooden bat and a Clemente jersey, telling her about how great he was and so on.   So naturally she asks, "Is he playing today?"

Some years ago I over at North Shore, and stopped by the 12' tall Clemente statue to listen to a dad explain who Roberto was to his 6 or 7 year old son. When he was finished, the kid said, "Well no wonder he was so good, look how big he was!!"

"According to a report from ESPN, all players in uniform who are of Puerto Rican descent will now be able to wear Clemente's number."

So now only Black players can wear 42 on Jackie Robinson Day?
