No BBs for Clemente

I love learning little tid-bits like this about legendary players:

From 1961 to 1972, Clemente hit .331, which was by far the best average over that time period. Only five players hit .300 in the 1960s (min. 4,000 plate appearances): Clemente, Rose, Aaron, Robinson, Mays. Clemente only walked 428 times in 6,231 plate appearances in the 1960s, which is staggering enough. It’s even more staggering when you realize that 132 of those were intentional. Clemente came to the plate to hit.
