Best Answer

Clemente showed an interest in baseball early in his life and would often play against neighboring barrios. He studied in Vizcarondo High School, a public school located in Carolina. During his first year in high school, he was recruited by Roberto Marin to play softball with the Sello Rojo team; Marin had taken interest in Clemente when he saw him playing baseball in Barrio San Anton. He was with the team two years, playing shortstop. Clemente joined Puerto Rico's amateur league whwhile there, he played for the Ferdinand Juncos team, which represented the municipality of Juncos.

During the winter season of 1958-59, Clemente didn't play winter baseball in Puerto Rico; instead, he served in the United States Marine Corps Reserves. He spent six months in his military commitment at Parris Island, South Carolina and Camp LeJeune in North Carolina. In Camp Lejeune, he served as an infantryman.

Although he served in the US Marine Corps Reserves, and was recruited to play softball in his first year of high school in Carolina, there is nothing really stating he finished high.
