"He's one of the guys who represents Latin American baseball," the Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez said. "I can see from the videos, he was pretty amazing." Clemente certainly was amazing in the '71 World Series, which is the time frame Gonzalez chose for his time-machine trip back. The Pirates right fielder hit .414 (12 hits in 29 at-bats) with two home runs, including a solo shot in Pittsburgh's clinching 2-1 victory in Game 7, during that series against Baltimore.
