1 quote found searching on Manuel de Jesus (Magan) "Manny" Sanguillen

When he die it was so big in Puerto Rico people stop everything. Nobody have any more parties for New Year's. Everybody go to the beach to try to find him. Try to find the body or at least something. I was really hurt for his wife. She went down to the beach every day, too, to pray or see what she could do. I think she is still going down there. Clemente is still on the ballclub. His spirit belong here. You know how great he was in the outfield. And he gives his life for somebody he don't know.

On teammate Roberto Clemente's tragic death in a plane crash on 12/31/1972 while on a mission of mercy to earthquake victims in Nicaragua
