Roger Clemens Throwing In Bullpen Session [VIDEO]
Roger Clemens looked pretty decent throwing the ball in a recent bullpen session. The 50-year old former Major League Baseball hurler is attempting to make a comeback with the Sugar Land Skeeters.
There are some great rivalries in sports. Yankees-Red Sox. Duke-North Carolina. Bears-Packers. You can add Sugar Land Skeeters vs. Bridgeport Bluefish to the list. Okay, not really, but the game between the two teams this Saturday will be much more meaningful with Roger Clemens penciled in to make a start for the Skeeters.
Clemens is attempting to make a baseball comeback at the age of 50. Clemens last pitched for the New York Yankees in 2007. He was 44 years old at the time. Clemens signed a contract with the Sugar Land Skeeters, a team in the independent Atlantic League. Sugar Land is located just outside of Houston which has a lot of people connecting the dots and speculating that Clemens will possibly sign again with the Houston Astros. I’ll believe it when I see it. The Rocket Man isn’t exactly rockin fire in this video. He has a long way to go.
One thing that I was saying on “The Noe Show” about this comeback effort by Roger Clemens is that the guy loves the game of baseball. That shouldn’t be left out of the equation. Sure, the guy is full of himself and might not be able to find a way to replace the high of playing baseball. Yes, the guy probably cheated and probably lied about cheating. There is a ton of negativity surrounding the guy, but it shouldn’t go unnoticed or overlooked that the guy loves the game of baseball. That’s partly why he’s making another go of it.
