Organizers of the virtual Roberto Clemente VIP Experience, slated for Thursday, August 26th at 7 pm ET, announced that AARP will be the presenting sponsor for the Roberto Clemente VIP Experience.
Much of what is known about Roberto Clemente is centered on his Hall of Fame baseball career, his ethnicity, or his untimely passing while engaged in philanthropic activities. However, little attention is given to the man behind the game. Drawing from the behind-the-scenes book Clemente: The True Legacy of an Undying Hero, authored by Roberto’s late wife Vera alongside his family, this VIP Experience will showcase a conversation with several key individuals in Roberto Clemente’s life, including his sons, Luis and Roberto Jr., as well as Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda. Bestselling Author & Motivational Speaker, Maria Marin, will also make an appearance to give a voice to Vera Clemente, who passed in 2019.
Immediately following the conversation, virtual attendees will have a chance to have their questions answered by Luis Clemente during a live Q & A session from the Discover Puerto Rico offices in Old San Juan. The event will take place on August 26th, 2021, between 7:00 and 8:00 pm ET. Registration is required to access the event.
Event producers, Atlantino, will utilize the Run The World virtual gathering platform, which will allow up to 20,000 attendees to participate in this live once-in-a-lifetime experience. Each attendee will receive a special digital insignia created to commemorate the life of Roberto Clemente in time for Hispanic Heritage Month.

“This is an exciting opportunity to share with thousands of Roberto Clemente fans the life of my father, Roberto Clemente, his dreams, his goals, his passion both on and off the field. By focusing this experience on the book written by my mother and the family, it gives the family great pride to participate in this momentous occasion,” stated Luis Clemente, son of Roberto Clemente.
“Roberto Clemente’s legacy is one of service, integrity, and grace. AARP is proud to sponsor the Roberto Clemente VIP Experience. He inspires us all to continue to fight so that all Latinos can live their lives with possibility.” – Yvette Peña, VP of Hispanic/Latino Audience Strategy, AARP
