Biography

American baseball player: star pitcher for the Boston Red Sox who drafted him in 1983. On November 5, 1996, he was granted free agency and signed with the Toronto Blue Jays on December 13 that year. On February 18, 1999 he was traded to the New York Yankees and played until the 2004 season when he donned the Houston uniform. Clemens has pitched in several World Series games and has won many awards.

He was implicated in the steroid scandal but denied that he had ever taken the illegal substance. Instead, he said, his trainer had injected him with vitamin B-12 and lidocaine. On January 6, 2008 he filed a suit in Houston, TX against his former trainer for "false and defamatory" statements.

Adding to his headaches caused by allegations of his illegal drug use, a news report in April 2008 claimed he had had a ten-year affair with country singer Mindy McCready. The affair reportedly began in 1991 when she was 15 and he was 28, married, with two children. She confirmed the report but he said nothing “improper” happened.

On August 19, 2010 he was indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice in his testimony before a Congressional Committee in February 2008. Clemens had continued to deny the charges and claims that he has not taken steroids or illegal performance enhancing drugs. He was placed on trial for perjury in July 2011. Opening arguments were made on July 13th and the judge declared a mistrial on July 14th after the jury inadvertently heard comments from a US Congressman about the case.
