Roger Clemens’ son, Houston high school pitcher Kacy Clemens, was drafted by the Astros in the 35th round Saturday, but he’s already decided to bypass signing in favor of college.
Roger broke the news to Jose De Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle, saying Kacy will attend the University of Texas–where Roger starred in 1982 and 1983 –“to get his education and get the Horns back to Omaha.”
As a 35th-round pick Clemens likely would have been in line for only a small signing bonus. Back in 1981 his dad was drafted by the Mets in the 12th round, but Roger opted to play two seasons for Texas, and then became the Red Sox’s first-round pick in 1983.
Koby Clemens, who’s Kacy’s older brother, was the Astros’ eighth-round pick in 2005.
