Roger Clemens Appearing at a Minor League Park Near You
We haven’t heard much from Mr. Mis-Remember since his fated day in front of the investigation committee. Now it looks like Roger Clemens is slowly coming out of his cage, showing up at a minor league game over the weekend between Worcester and Ottawa (Worcester’s manager was a teammate of Clemens on the Red Sox).
Followed by an entourage of police officers, Clemens walked from the dugout to the Tornadoes’ bullpen midway through the fourth inning. Before leaving the field, he signed autographs for team employees but not fans. He was also introduced by the public address announcer and waved to the crowd of 3,153, who responded with a chorus of cheers and boos.
A chorus of cheers and boos? That’s a strange mix. Obviously there are still many people in the public that think Clemens is nothing but a cheat. But Clemens was also in the New England area — a place where he first made his name and became a Red Sox legend. And what’s up with being picky over the autographs, Roger? Maybe he has to be conservative with them since he’s apparently hard up for cash these days.
