“When I put on my uniform, I feel I am the proudest man on earth.” –Roberto Clemente
The Pittsburgh Pirates’ legendary right fielder felt the same about his duty to his country, as he joined the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve in 1958. A private first class while stationed at Parris Island, South Carolina, Clemente famously said he was “born to play baseball.” But he was far more than a baseball player.
In keeping with the spirit of their service, we have partnered with our friends Jay Glazer and Nate Boyer at MVP (Merging Vets and Players). In addition to normal royalties going to the estates of our featured Icons, we will be matching the royalty proceeds and donating them to MVP.
MVP empowers combat veterans and former professional athletes by connecting them after the uniform comes off; providing them with a new team to assist with the transition, promote personal development, and show them they are never alone.
