PITTSBURGH -- Andrew McCutchen, who was announced on Monday as one of 30 nominees for the 2013 MLB Roberto Clemente Award, was presented with the Pirates Roberto Clemente Award in a brief but illustrious pregame ceremony Tuesday night.
Vera Clemente, the late humanitarian's widow, and Pirates club chairman Bob Nutting participated in the presentation to McCutchen.
In addition to the award, the three-time All-Star outfielder received a framed replica of Clemente's vintage No. 21 Pirates jersey.
