Found June 23, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
Roger Clemens returned to Fenway Park on Friday night as he sat in the front row of the Monster Seats to watch the Boston Red Sox play the Atlanta Braves.

Clemens, who pitched for the Red Sox between 1984 and 1996, was shown on the scoreboard before the start of the fourth inning and received a mix of cheers and boos. It was one of Clemens' first public appearances since he was acquitted of federal charges of perjury, making false statements and obstruction of justice earlier this week.
