As part of the Hispanic Heritage Festival, the Clemente Museum is hosting an open house to celebrate Roberto Clemente’s 3,000th hit in 1972. The right fielder (aka “The Great One”) died later that year on board a small plane en route to assist with earthquake relief in Nicaragua.
The museum’s Sept. 30 event features live Bomba music – created on the sugar plantations of Puerto Rico by African slaves more than 400 years ago – along with food, games, activities and workshops.
The $21 ticket includes access to the museum floors where attendees can engage with docents discussing Clemente’s artifacts, memorabilia and accomplishments.
