Roberto Clemente : The 1966 National League Most Valuable Player

Roberto Clemente put it all together in 1966.

He was an All-Star.

He won a Gold Glove Award.

And he was the National League MVP.

The numbers: 202 hits in 154 games played, .317 batting average, .360 on-base percentage, 31 doubles, 11 triples, 29 home runs, 105 runs scored, 119 RBI, and 342 total bases.

A truly magnificent season that culminated in a very deserving tag of ‘Most Valuable Player’.

  1. In 1966, I was only a couple years older than my oldest grandson is now. I hope when he is a grandfather he will have fond memories of the game’s greatest players of his youth as I do. The Pirates played well in 1966 and were in the mix of a senior league championship. Roberto was a big part of that season. There were three future HOF members on the 1966 Pirate club, Pops, Maz and the Great One.
