August 21, 2012, Sugar Land, Texas, United States: Roger Clemens signedto pitch for the minor league independent team, The Sugar Land Skeeters. The baseball superstar earned about $160 million and won 354 games in a 24-year career with the Red Sox, Blue Jays, Yankees and Astros. His 4,672 strikeouts are third-most and he was named to 11 All-Star games. Clemens was accused by former personal trainer Brian McNamee in the Mitchell Report on drugs in baseball of using steroids and HGH, allegations Clemens denied before Congress. In 2010 a grand jury indicted him on two counts of perjury, three counts of making false statements and one count of obstructing Congress. (F. Carter Smith/Polaris) ///

ESPN Classic to Show Old Man Playing Baseball

It's strange: Roger Clemens hasn't really been around for the last three years, and still, we're sick of him. Regardless: Clemens's not-really-sure-what-he's-up-to-here comeback tour kicks off tomorrow night with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League. (That team also has Scott Kazmir, Tim Redding, and Jeff Farnsworth, by the way. The Skeeters' opponent, the Bridgeport Bluefish, have Shea Hillenbrand, Joey Gathright, and Angel Flores.) And the game is actually going to be broadcast live: ESPN Classic will show the game at 7 p.m. Saturday night. It'll be a circus, but everything with Roger always has been. We just want to know if the 50-year-old is still frosting his tips.
