Amazing after nearly half a century, Hollywood's never made a biopic of the great Clemente?! IMO, a very gripping part of the story was his funeral. Clemente's teammate/close friend Manny Sanguillén was the only member of the Pirates not to attend Roberto's memorial service, choosing instead to dive into the waters of the crash in an effort to find his old friend. (NT)The bodies of Clemente and three others who were also on the four-engine plane were never recovered.Monday, December 31, 03:31:42pm
