Clemens to visit York with Skeeters
OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS: Roger Clemens will make a roadtrip with his new teammates after all. For those of you that got the Suzyn Waldman reference there, why then you have the memory of an elephant. Kudos.
It’s been announced Clemens’ next start for Sugar Land will be Friday, September 7 when the Skeeters host the Long Island Ducks at Constellation Field. But Clemens will indeed travel with the team when they come to York for a four-game series starting Monday, lasting through Thursday. (September 3-6.)
Clemens is scheduled to be with the Skeeters for the first two games of the series in York on Monday and Tuesday. According to the Skeeters, he will then depart back to Texas to get ready for his next start. Should he pitch on 9/7 as scheduled, that would be a 12-day layoff from his previous start last Saturday against Bridgeport.
One could infer that with Clemens scheduled to go on Friday, he will not pitch against the Revolution in York. We’ll see…how about an inning out of the bullpen? Let me make it clear that nothing like that has been mentioned to me. I’m just saying that would be pretty cool.
Here is the link from the Revolution website, where you can buy tickets to one or both of the games on Monday and Tuesday if you want to see Clemens up close: http://yorkrevolution.com/team/roger-clemens-coming-to-york.html
