Major League Baseball will allow all Puerto Rican players to wear Roberto Clemente's No. 21 during the commemoration of the 19th annual Roberto Clemente Day on Wednesday, Sept. 9.
All players will also be given the option to wear a patch with the No. 21 to commemorate the legacy of the late Pittsburgh Pirates star.
"It is an extraordinary honor and a source of great pride for all of us to have the opportunity to wear No. 21 to honor Roberto Clemente on this great day," Jose Molina said. "For all us Latinos who have played Major League Baseball, and have had to deal with so many obstacles, difficulties and challenges, Clemente is the source of inspiration we need to move forward and pursue our dreams and be an example to others on and off the field."
