Roberto Clemente, Jr. Squeeze Play Productions, LLC
Roberto Clemente, Jr. is a baseball broadcaster and former professional baseball player from San Juan, Puerto Rico. His father, Roberto Clemente was the first Latin American player to compile 3,000 hits in Major League Baseball history. Roberto Clemente Sr. remains the rare elite athlete whose humanitarian deeds are remembered with as much admiration as his accomplishments on the field.
Roberto Jr.’s mother, Vera, is a celebrity as well, having for many years hosted a telethon in Puerto Rico to raise funds for “Ciudad Roberto Clemente,” a sports complex located in Carolina, Puerto Rico.
He was one of the youngest speakers in the history of the U.S. Congress when he spoke of his Father's dream of a “Sports City” in Puerto Rico - a place where young and old could not only convene to indulge in recreational activities, but more importantly to spend quality time with family and “become good and involved citizens.”
He moved to Bradenton, Florida after graduating high school in 1984 and was spotted by a Philadelphia Phillies scout. He was signed by the organization and joined their division-A team in 1985, the same year in which he made his debut in the Puerto Rican winter baseball league with the Arecibo Wolves. Due to knee and back injuries, his professional baseball career ended and he returned to Puerto Rico to help his mother in her quest to make his Father's dream, Roberto Clemente Sports City, a reality.
In 1996, Roberto Jr. launched his broadcasting career covering the New York Yankees for the MSG Network, Telemundo and Radio WADO-AM. His broadcast resume includes hosting Major League Baseball's Spanish version of MLB's network television show ( Baseball Max), serving as a baseball correspondent for ESPN Deportes Radio, being named the first Latin talk show personality in the 20-year history of WFAN-AM (NY) and hosting the Clemente Bridge on WPGBFM in Pittsburgh.
Roberto Jr. is actively involved in brain technology and is currently spearheading an effort to raise the awareness of brain health with “RC21X”, a product which enables individuals to self- monitor their brain health & cognitive ability. He is a board member of the National Hispanic Health Foundation and is an Ambassador for the Starkey Hearing Foundation and Food for the Hungry.
