The city of Pittsburgh has found another way to commemorate their baseball hero, ​Roberto Clemente


Verdetto's Bar and Restaurant, located on the North Side of Pittsburgh, unveiled a mural of ​Clemente on the side of their restaurant on Friday.

The mural is 40-feet high, spanning over two and a half stories. 


The Verdetto family restaurant has been in business since the 1930s. Members of the family said they once met Clemente in the 1960s, and they still have an autograph that he signed for them. 

Drivers heading onto the Parkway North will be able to glimpse the mural, along with the other proud members of the North Side. ​


This well-made piece of art is a great way to honor the legend, Roberto Clemente.
