Awards=HOF? Part Thirty-Four: The Roberto Clemente Award

We here at Notinhalloffame.com thought it would be fun to take a look at the major awards in North American team sports and see how it translates into Hall of Fame potential.

Needless to say, different awards in different sports yield hall of fame potential.  In basketball, the team sport with the least number of players on a roster, the dividend for greatness much higher.  In baseball, it is not as much as a great individual season does not have the same impact.

For our next selection we look at the Roberto Clemente Award. Originally, this was called the Commissioners Award, the accolade is given annually to the player who best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to the team.  It was renamed the Roberto Clemente Award following the death of Clemente who died in a plane crash while on the way to Nicaragua to deliver supplies to victims of the Nicaragua Earthquake.

So, how many Roberto Clemente Award winners have been enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame?

Let’s find out!

*Please note that as statistics are not as relevant for this award so as opposed to how we normally list players, we will simply just list the winners as opposed to go into that year’s accomplishments.

The following are the past players who have won the Roberto Clemente Award in the MLB who are eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame and have been enshrined.

Pat Bowlen's family will be the first posthumous recipient of the PFHOF Gold Jacket

For the first time ever The Pro Football Hall of Fame will be issuing a gold jacket to a posthumous inductee as Pat Bowlen, the late owner of the Denver Broncos will have one given to his family.

In the case of Bowlen, he was the first person to pass away after being chosen (February 2) but passed away (June 13) before the actual ceremony.  As such, the Hall stated that they were already in the process of creating his jacket and ring, though due to Bowlen being in late-stage Alzheimer’s, he was not scheduled to attend.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame had previously never done this before.  It was discussed in 2015 when Ken Stabler passed away and was nominated as a Senior Candidate six weeks later.  The former Quarterback was chosen and the request of his family to have a gold jacket made was turned down as they clung to their policy of never having given one out posthumously.  

In Bowlen’s case, the jacket and ring will be given to the family on October 13 during Denver's home game against the Tennessee Titans.
