Roger Clemens Still Mowing Down The Competition At 50
Roger Clemens is a guy you either love or hate and many times I think that is the way he likes it sometimes. Clemens pitched 3 1-3 scoreless innings for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Independent Atlantic League. At age 50 Roger Clemens did look very good. When asked about a major league comeback he said no, but sometimes it makes you wonder. Why would a man come out and pitch for a team like this just for fun?
Scouts from Kansas City and Houston were in attendance to watch Roger Clemens pitch. Clemens said he enjoyed pitching in front of the 7,000 plus fans. In the end, we really have no idea why Roger Clemens is pitching at this level. Maybe it is for the enjoyment and giving back to the fans. I think there happens to be an underlying reason in all of this in the end.
Clemens has always wanted to get to the Baseball Hall Of Fame and he knows right now that is probably not likely. Maybe a year in the Major Leagues again may give some credence to that for him. I guess we will just have to wait and see how this all plays out. We did learn Roger Clemens can still pitch well at the age of 50.
