Roger Clemens Comeback: 50-Year-Old Pitcher Impresses In Debut

Roger Clemens was as impressive as a 50-year-old Atlantic League rookie pitcher tossing on five years of rest could be on Saturday night in his debut for the Sugar Land Skeeters. Clemens said he thought the outing went great.

He pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings, allowed one hit and struck out two in his first game since the 2007 ALDS with the New York Yankees. Clemens threw 37 pitches, 24 for strikes, against the Bridgeport Bluefish at Constellation Field in Sugar Land.

Curt Schilling, Clemens' former teammate with the Boston Red Sox, was on the broadcast team for Saturday night's game and said it didn't look like Clemens missed a beat.

What's next could be a return to Major League Baseball, most likely with the league's worst team, the Houston Astros.
