Several highly knowledgeable docents will be on hand to answer questions about artifacts, memorabilia and Roberto’s life and legacy.
As a way to give back to the Puerto Rican community, the museum will also be raising funds to donate to the Puerto Rican Non-Profit Organization, Taller Comunidad La Goyco. La Goyco is a neighborhood organization located in the Machuchal sector and Calle Loiza of Santurce, Puerto Rico that develops cultural, community, and health initiatives. Repurposed from an old elementary school building that was closed by the Department of Education in 2015, the building has become their center of operations.
Taller Comunidad La Goyco is located in the Santurce neighborhood of San Juan where Clemente began his professional baseball career at the age of 18. Tito Matos, one of the organization’s co-founders, a well-known Puerto Rican “Plenero” who dedicated his life to the well-being of his community and his people, similar to Roberto Clemente. Tito Matos, who also passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, embodied the same humanitarian spirit and upheld similar values of social justice as Roberto Clemente.
