Hines Ward

This former University of Georgia star and Super Bowl XL MVP is the epitome of a Positive Athlete. Not only was Hines an all SEC performer and four-time Pro Bowler for the Steelers and ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” champion, he was also voted the “Most Positive Professional Athlete in the World” by a group of United Nations non-governmental organizations such as Rotary International and Sister Cities International. He was named the Steelers’ “2008 Walter Payton Man of the Year,” was featured as ABC’s “Person of the Week,” has met and befriended five world leaders (two U.S. Presidents, two Korean Presidents, and the Secretary General of the United Nations), and founded and drives his Helping Hands Foundations both in the U.S. and Korea.

Roberto Clemente

One of the most popular Pittsburgh Pirates of all time, Roberto Clemente’s pride and humanitarianism won him universal admiration. For 18 years, Clemente starred in the Pirates outfield, winning four National League batting crowns and batted .317 in his career, with 240 home runs and 1,305 RBIs. Despite an unorthodox batting style, he amassed 3,000 hits. He also won 12 Gold Glove Awards, displaying a precise and powerful arm. Clemente earned National League MVP honors in 1966 but achieved his greatest fame in the 1971 World Series, in which he batted .414.
