The Official Site of the Pittsburgh Pirates

To celebrate the life and legacy of Roberto Clemente, the Pirates packed five CARE-a-vans with players, coaches, alumni and the Clemente Family, and spent the morning of September 5 serving five different communities throughout the city of Pittsburgh - Pirates Fiesta at Allegheny Intermediate Unit (AIU) Latino Family Center, Shred-Hate School Assembly at Brashear High School, Miracle League Fantasy Camp at PNC Park, BINGO at Southwestern Veterans Center, and Fun at Bat at Conroy Education Center.

The Pirates also celebrated the Latino/Hispanic heritage of its current uniformed staff with a special on-field presentation that united Pirates Spanish-speaking players, coaches and staff with Pittsburgh Spanish-speaking youth - AIU Latino Family Center and Iglesia Cristiana Hispana - each displaying their country's flag, but now call Pittsburgh home.
