Roberto Clemente Museum and Wine Tour
The Harvard Club of Western PA is hosting a group tour of the Roberto Clemente Museum on Thursday, April 7, 2016. The tour will start at 4:00 PM. Children ages 10+ are welcome. The cost is $20/adult and $10/child. After the tour, which typically lasts about an hour and a half, adults are welcome to go next door to the wine tasting room named Arriba to enjoy a sampling of the wines that are made on location at the Engine House 25 Winery.
The Clemente Museum is housed in historic Engine House 25, located in the revitalized Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh. Executive Director and Curator, Duane Rieder, has meticulously renovated Engine House 25 to showcase the world’s largest exhibited collection of baseball artifacts, works of art, literature, photographs, memorabilia, and related materials which focus on Roberto Clemente, his personal life, teammates, and his humanitarian causes.
Whether it is the Gold Gloves, The Silver Slugger Award, The 1960 and 1971 World Series Rings, the cleats and home base from the ’71 series or the name of his wife Vera, scratched into a vase made by Roberto for her, visitors to the museum will leave knowing, more fully, what made Roberto Clemente a great man.
You may pay at the door. Due to the nature of the event, the tour has a 20 person maximum capacity, so RSVP early! If you have any questions about the event, please contact Mike Dukovich ’06 for more information: MJDukovich@gmail.com.
