Carlos Correa, who took home the American League Rookie of the Year award over the weekend, revealed that he hopes to honor fellow Puerto Rican Roberto Clemente on the field one day.
"Just reading about him and listening to stories from different people, he's my idol for life," Correa said. "I look up to him a lot, try to play the game hard like he did, respect the game. But for me, the most important thing he did was create an impact, a positive impact in the community and society.
"... Nothing would make me more proud than eventually wearing No. 21 on Roberto Clemente Day in my Astros uniform. For me, that will be something really special."
