It may have been a while ago in the midst of the shock of Hurricane Maria that I overlooked that one of the first major baseball franchises to arrive with aid for Puerto Rico was the Pittsburgh Pirates. Their commitment to their big ’21’ figure could not fail.
Even if you are not that much of a baseball fan his figure is among the greats of Pittsburgh history at the Heinz Center of the Smithsonian Institution and if you want more to know him there is the Roberto Clemente Museum on Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh.
Nothing at all with baseball and sports. Roberto Clemente Avenue runs through the heart of the University of Pittsburgh where his students in the school of global studies study him as one of the leading humanist figures of the 20th Century.
Today is today and it is true that major ensembles become fashionable according to the moment with their heroes. On the other hand, it is time once again to remember in our hearts the emblematic man of Puerto Rico, Roberto Clemente.

Full of throwback vibes and a whole lot of romance, today’s. wedding at the Pittsburgh Botanical Gardens will definitely leave you with all the feels.

After saying they do outdoor style, the newlyweds and their guests dined under a see-through tent, decorated with restaurant lights. An impeccable combination of tall centerpieces, white tapered candles and cross-backed wooden chairs allowed for a distinctly elegant yet casual style.
