Clemens enjoys memorable, surreal return

SUGAR LAND, Texas Step outside your cynicism if you can. Just for a moment. Don't think about the perjury trial or the Hall of Fame. Because if you were there, if you were one of the 7,724 people at Constellation Field on Saturday, you were witness to something you will tell your grandkids about. I saw Roger Clemens pitch for a little independent baseball team in Sugar Land...

Roger Clemens Sterling for Skeeters in Return to Baseball, Says He's Not Planning Major League Comeback

SUGAR LAND, Texas -- Roger Clemens raved about all the fun he had pitching at age 50 and putting smiles on the faces of Sugar Land baseball fans. Still, it wasn't enough to set his mind on a major league comeback -- at least not yet. "No," Clemens said. "I've had success before at that level and other things. Again, it's a great deal of work, and I'...

Former New York Yankees Star Roger Clemens Shines in Sugar Land Skeeters Debut Outing

Former Major Leaguer Roger Clemens made a return to the mound on Saturday, pitching for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League. After an impressive outing, could a return to the Majors be in the 50 year-old right-hander’s future?  “I think it will fuel that speculation,” said Kansas City Royals pro scout Ron Toenjes, who was in attendance to watch Clemens...

ESPN Classic and ESPN3 will televise Roger Clemens' comeback tonight

On Monday, the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League signed Roger Clemens for whatever reason (publicity stunt, Hall of Fame voting manipulation, a lark), and announced he'd be pitching tonight. Of course, ESPN has jumped all over this, and will be extensively covering the game... I mean, it's not like there's a pennant race going on or anything. ...

Clemens makes return to the mound

SUGAR LAND, Texas (AP) -- Roger Clemens is back on the mound at age 50, striking out hitters again. Clemens pitched Saturday night for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League.

The Houston Astros are open to bringing Roger Clemens back

The Houston Astros are putting themselves out there in regards to pitcher Roger Clemens. As the 50-year-old apparently ageless wonder prepares to throw down with the Sugar Land Skeeters on Saturday, the Astros are working on a contingency plan that plays with the notion of Clemens coming back to a MLB mound. Clemens’ fastball can still flirt with the high 80s and Houston’s amateur...

DeFrancesco would welcome Clemens

By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- If the struggling Houston Astros want to bring back Roger Clemens, interim manager Tony DeFrancesco would welcome the 50-year-old pitcher into his inexperienced clubhouse. "I have nothing against Roger. He's a Hall of Fame pitcher and we can use maybe a guy with 300 wins, who knows?" DeFrancesco, 49, said Friday...

Bill 'Spaceman' Lee pitches complete game at age 65

Roger Clemens pitching at age 50 has nothing over Bill "Spaceman" Lee's latest gig.  The former Red Sox and Expos lefthander, one of baseball's all-time great characters, became the oldest pitcher to ever win a game after he threw a complete game victory for the San Rafael Pacifics of the independent North American League.  And it wasn't a publicity stunt...

Clemens Debuts As A Skeeter

Clemens: Lance must just be 'fed up'

Roger Clemens says he can only speculate at why Lance Armstrong decided to stop fighting charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his cycling career.
