Roger Clemens Comeback: Pitcher Will Make Second Independent League Sept. 7, According To Report

Pitcher Roger Clemens will make his second start for the Sugar Land Skeeters on Sept. 7 against the Long Island Ducks, according to his agent. This was reported by Houston television station KRIV and the Houston Chronicle.

In his first start for the Skeeters last Saturday night against the Bridgeport Bluefish, Clemens pitched three and one-third shut out innings and struck out two batters. While some believe this is the first step to pitching in the majors again, the 50-year-old has downplayed that possibility so far.

If Clemens does pitch again, it will delay his eligibility to the Baseball Hall of Fame for another five years. He is scheduled to be on the ballot for the first time this fall.
