Boston's David Ortiz has won this year's Roberto Clemente award, given annually to a major league player who gives back through community service and also excels on the field.
Clemente was a Hall of Fame right fielder with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He died in a plane crash on New Year's Eve 1972 while trying to deliver food and relief supplies to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. He finished his career with exactly 3,000 hits.
