That would be Roberto Clemente, elected in 1973 soon after his tragic death. (The 5-year waiting period was waived.) The first Hispanic player elected not on a special consideration would be Al Lopez, a catcher as a player but elected primarily for his achievements as a manager. Lopez joined the HOF in 1977, which would have been before Clemente would normally have been eligible, perhaps even before Clemente would have retired. The first Hispanic player other than Clemente elected strictly for his performance on the field was Juan Marichal, a native of the Dominican Republic and the pitcher who won the most games during the 1960s (191). Marichal was elected to the HOF in 1983.
Roger Clemens won seven Cy Young Awards during his career.
