Roger Clemens is 50 years old. He's a seven-time Cy Young Award winner. He may or may not be a Hall of Famer. He is not a criminal.
And he is now, once again, a baseball pitcher. In related news, he is also a Skeeter.
Clemens is expected to make his first start for his new team, the Sugar Land (Texas) Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League, on Saturday night.
Randy Hendricks, one of Clemens' agents, told USA Today via email that this could be a one-time outing. Or maybe not.
"It is at this point a fun, local, one time kind of thing," Hendricks wrote. "If he does well, he will probably make at least one more home start. He threw 87 mph today with four pitches working, so he looks good to go at this point."
