Photo Snapped from Phineas Street

I was headed to I-279 and pulled into Phineas Street on the North Side to capture beloved Pittsburgh Pirate, Roberto Clemente’s likeness on this building.

Artist Jeremy Raymer painted this stunning mural. Here’s an article written by Bob Bauder about the painting.

The building that served as the “canvas” for Baseball Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente’s portrait is Verdetto’s Bar and Restaurant.

  1. I was able to see him play many times. I can still see him throwing a strike from deep right field to home plate. I remember turning on the radio on New Year’s Day, 1973 and hearing the news of his death in an airplane accident. A true Pittsburgh baseball icon.

Hope writing a comment today is not a major hassle.....I appreciate hearing from you when you have a minute.
