Clemente won't be a saint

posted by Bill Mead - 

The Vatican says there's no truth to the rumors that late Pirates star Roberto Clemente is going to become a saint.  Vatican officials denied rumors of a Clemente official blessing by Pope Francis to "The Washington Post" late last week.  The rumors are believed to have started with a Christian News Wire post last month.  The article quoted the man who directed "Baseball's Last Hero" about Clemente's life.  Richard Rossi started pushing for Clemente's beatification not long after the film was released in 2013.
