Roger Clemens Returns to Baseball, To Pitch Saturday

He’s baacckkk…and he’s looking to add a few extra “Ks.”  With his Federal perjury trial behind him, Roger Clemens is set to seal his return to the baseball diamond in a familiar state.

FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig reports:

Audio clip:

Reminiscing after a jury cleared him of lying to Congress in June…

(Clemens) “I put a lot of hard work into that career.”

Roger Clemens, deciding it’s not quite time to call it time on that career.  The 50-year-old, set to sign with teh minor-league Sugar Land Skeeters, where he’ll pitch on Saturday.

The Skeeters are named after a creature that enjoys steroid-free blood – it’s Southern slang for a mosquito.  They play in front of 7,500 at Constellation Field, a far cry – but short drive – from the 40,000-seat Minute Maid Park in Houston, where Clemens once pitched for the Astros.

Clemens’ agent says he’s still got it, hitting 87 mph with his fastball.
