Roberto Clemente, a fast man in the field, squeezed in a quick shave in the Pittsburgh Pirate dressing room, June 2, 1965, during a rain spell that interrupted the Pirates 4-0 victory over Philadelphia. It was the Pirates 12th straight victory, but at the time, the victory was still in doubt. That’s the meaning of the 12 and question mark Clemente squirted on the mirror with shaving cream.

Not only was [Roberto] Clemente a baseball player, he was also a Marine. Instead of playing winter ball in Puerto Rico during the 1958-59 off season like the rest of the league, Clemente enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, spending six years of military commitment as an infantryman. The rigorous conditioning and military training kept him in shape throughout the winter. Clemente remained in the Marine Corps until 1964, but this did not slow down his game. When the Pittsburgh Pirates started spring training … in 1964, however, the schedule conflicted with Clemente’s military commitment. The Pirates, supported by former state Senator John M. Walker, asked U.S. Senator Hugh Scott to consider Clemente for an early discharge.
