 Biographical Information
When three Pirates scouts came to Puerto Rico to sign Clemente, Luis's uncle encouraged them to take a look at Clemente's friend Orlando Merced. The Pirates signed Merced, a move which paid off. The next season Luis played second base briefly for the GCL Pirates, going 4 for 17 with 2 walks and 2 RBI. It was his sole performance as a minor league player. Like his brother, he would devote his life to charities fulfilling his father's wishes.
