Houston, Texas (KTRK) – Houston Astros’ Jose Altuve will be honored as a nominee for the 2022 Major League Baseball Roberto Clemente Award.

The award is given to one player “who best represents the game of baseball through extraordinary character, community engagement, philanthropy, and positive contributions on and off the field.”

The MLB will honor Clemente’s legacy on Thursday, which marks the 21st annual Roberto Clemente Day.

Clemente was a Puerto Rican baseball player who spent 18 seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

He died in 1972, and is remembered for his legacy as a humanitarian.

Altuve will also be honored Thursday at Minute Maid Park as a nominee.

Some of the Altuve community’s efforts include hosting various charitable events to give back to the community. He has also been active during the pandemic, as he and his wife, Nina, have teamed up with the Astros Foundation to provide 60,000 Kids Meals to support children in need.

The award winner will be selected at the league level by a committee formed by the MLB.

Fans have the chance to vote every day until the end of the season on October 5th at MBL site.
