On September 7th, MLB celebrated Roberto Clemente Day at ballparks around the country.  Roberto Clemente, Baseball Hall of Famer and  humanitarian, dedicated his life to helping others. MLB presents the Roberto Clemente Award annually to recognize the player who best   represents the game of baseball through positive contributions, community involvement and philanthropy on and off the field. This year in addition to recognizing a player, MLB  established SEAT 21 in each ballpark to recognize a  community. Hector Perez is the Chicago Cubs SEAT 21 honoree and was presented with the award by Chicago Cubs 1st Baseman Anthony Rizzo. Rizzo is also the Chicago Cubs nominee for the 2016 Roberto Clemente Award. Congratulations Hector and thank you for your continued service to youth through our Union League Boys & Girls Clubs.
