*****Clemens is 50 years old and he has been out of the game for five years, but tonight he proved he still has something and this might take him all the way back to the majors…..If he gets back to the MLB level, he can have his Hall of Fame consideration postponed for five years and that will give him time to try and further repair his name and his career…..*****
SUGAR LAND, Texas — Roger Clemens was back on the mound at age 50, striking out hitters again.
Pitching for the first time in five years, Clemens tossed 3 1/3 scoreless innings Saturday night for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League.
Clemens faced the Bridgeport Bluefish and struck out two, including former major leaguer Joey Gathright to start the game. He allowed one hit without a walk and threw 37 pitches.
Scouts from the Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals were on hand to watch Clemens’ comeback — for however long it lasts and wherever it leads.
