roberto+clementeAnother baseball legend is getting his own movie.

News broke out that a feature about late Pittsburgh Pirates star Roberto Clemente is being developed.

He was the first Latino player inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum – in 18 seasons, he was one of Major League Baseball’s premier talents, winning the 1966 National League MVP, playing in 15 All-Star Games, and achieving an impressive 3,000 hits.

The Puerto Rican outfielder was renowned for his work outside the diamond before tragedy struck. He aided in relief efforts after the massive 1972 Nicaragua earthquake, but on a flight to the country on New Year’s Eve, the plane – overloaded – crashed into the ocean. Roberto died at 38.

Now the question is…who should play him????
