What would you do if you knew there was going to be a terrible accident?

When Stosh travels into the past to meet Roberto Clemente, a legendary ballplayer and a beloved humanitarian, he’s got only one goal: warning Roberto not to get on the doomed plane that will end his life in a terrible crash. In the sixties, Stosh meets free-spirited Sunrise, and together they travel across the country to a ball game that leaves them breathless—and face-to-face with Roberto. But when the time comes for Stosh to return to the future, he finds that the adventure has only just begun. . . .

Player Biography
“He gave the term ‘complete’ a new meaning. He made the word ‘superstar’ seem inadequate. He had about him the touch of royalty,” stated former commissioner Bowie Kuhn in eulogizing Roberto Clemente Walker after the player’s tragic death at age 38. Clemente, the great Pittsburgh Pirates right fielder, was killed in a plane crash while flying relief supplies to Nicaraguan earthquake victims. Clemente’s pride and humanitarianism won him universal admiration, while his brilliance on the field became legendary. He won four batting crowns and amassed 3,000 hits, displaying a precise and powerful arm. Clemente earned National League Most Valuable Player honors in 1966.
