- The Roberto Clemente Memorial Park honors one of the city's favorite baseball players. Roberto Clemente played for the Pittsburgh Pirates for 18 years and helped the team win the 1972 World Series. Months after the victory, Clemente died in a plane crash while supplying humanitarian aid to Costa Rica. A bronze statue depicts Clemente's ability with a baseball bat. The park sits on the North Side near the ballpark on the Allegheny River's north shore and has a water-taxi dock and facilities for boating, fishing and biking.
