ESPNDallas.com has the clip, which shows Roger Clemens throwing a couple of pitches in a game pitting former University of Texas Longhorns against the current squad. After striking out two in a perfect inning, Clemens discussed the Hall of Fame.
“Well, it’d be fantastic. I’ve said many times there’s little pieces of me there because I’ve had some spectacular games,” he stated.
The possibility of a comeback didn’t come up, even though the 49-year-old Clemens is just a few months older than Jamie Moyer. Clemens, who won 354 games in 24 seasons, will be eligible for the Hall of Fame for the first time next year, but he and Barry Bonds are both likely to miss the cut because of their steroid controversies.
