Orioles nominate Alberto for Roberto Clemente Award

Recommended Posts

Quote


“Thank you, fellas, for the support,” Alberto said after another round of applause. “I know some of the stuff that I take home is stuff from you guys and my ex-teammates. And that’s why we’re here, you know, to help each other. Some of us in the Dominican, we grow up with nothing, so now we’ve got the opportunity to have everything, so it’s good to help others and to make their lives easier. So thank you so much and I hope you guys continue to help me out to be a better human being, a better teammate and a better person. Thank you.
 

 

Pretty humble guy!

Also the article mentions Davis getting the nomination the las three years which is a real head scratcher for me. I’m fine with a the good off the field stuff but his on field performance was not Clemente like.

It’s got nothing to do with on field performance.

Infielder Hanser Alberto is the Orioles’ nominee for this year’s Roberto Clemente Award, which is the annual recognition of a player from each club who “best represents the game of baseball through extraordinary character, sportsmanship, community involvement, philanthropy and positive contributions, both on and off the field.”

OK, I stand corrected.    Should’ve checked.   I think it’s safe to say that the O’s haven’t paid attention to that final criterion when nominating Davis.   I see Paul Konerko won the award in 2014 while posting a .572 OPS in 81 games, but most of the winners were at least playing decently at the time.

Yeah ...pretty bush league by the organization. I’m glad Davis has been charitable with the money he’s stealing from the Orioles.

Yeah, I know he earned with his previous performance and Angelos’ stupidity of negotiating with himself but that ship has sailed.

Roberto Clemente ...... he was such a great man that I can look past the fact that he broke my little 6 year-old heart in October of 1971, and still love him.
