Even at age 50, Roger Clemens has still got it.
Clemens, making his first appearance on the mound in a professional baseball game since 2007, dazzled the Sugar Land crowd with 3.1 scoreless innings in a 1-0 Skeeters victory over the Bridgeport Bluefish on Saturday night. The legendary pitcher mixed sharp curves and splitters with a fastball that hit 88 mph on the radar gun, throwing a total of 37 pitches and striking out two. Scouts for the Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals were in attendance, further fueling the idea that Clemens is eying a major league comeback.
Why would he possibly be considering a return to the big leagues, and is this really a good idea?
