YORK—He's one of the greatest pitchers in Major League Baseball history and on Tuesday, the Rocket lands on the mound at Sovereign Banks Stadium. Now 50 years old, Roger Clemens tosses a warmup session in front of fans in York. Clemens says he is just having fun after making one start for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League. He is being courted by the league to get involved in some capacity, perhaps as an owner of a possible expansion team in Texas. His trip this week to Pennsylvania allows him to take a look at the Revolution's setup in York.
"When I started to look at the calendar a little bit and if I was going to throw again, this would be a side session," Clemens said. "They asked if I would come up and kind of do it in York. Most of our guys that are at Sugar Land now, some of them started here so I said no problem."
He didn't air it out completely during the session on the mound Tuesday. Clemens was in the low to mid 80's on the radar gun. Clemens is scheduled to start for the Skeeters this Friday Night in Texas. He has ruled out a return to the majors this year and said he is nowhere near ready to pitch in the big leagues.
