Yadi recognized with 2018 Clemente Award

MLB.com The education, Yadier Molina recalled, started at home, where a picture of the great Roberto Clemente hung prominently on the wall. His mother had insisted it be displayed.


Then there were the stories, often told by Molina's father, who once sat in the same dugout as the greatest Major Leaguer to ever come from their island of Puerto Rico. Molina heard about the 3,000 hits, the 15 All-Star selections, the majestic throws from right field. He also learned about the importance of legacy, and how Clemente's could not be adequately summed up with stats.


"He was even better outside the lines," Molina recalled his father saying. "Those words stuck in my mind."
