Son Clemens takes dad Clemens deep
Roger Clemens' first pitch of his simulated game against Houston Astros minor-leaguers went over the left-field fence. Next time that batter was up, he got buzzed high and tight. Who was in the box against Rocket? His son Koby.
Roger Clemens threw 66 pitches Monday afternoon, followed by 18 more batting practice pitches.
The 43-year-old Clemens wants to pitch in the World Baseball Classic and then decide if he'll retire or play a 23rd season, said Koby Clemens, a third baseman in the Astros' farm system.
I don't think it means anything in the long run, but it is pretty funny. Wonder what kind of career the Koby will have. Those are some big shoes to fill. Luckily he's not a pitcher.
