CLEMENS WATCH 2012: He will pitch a public side-session at York on Tuesday
The phenomenon that is #ClemensFest 2012 will continue early next week when he visits York. While it’s been confirmed Roger Clemens will not pitch in a game against the Revolution at Sovereign Bank Stadium, he will be taking the hill.
It’s been announced that Clemens will throw a “bullpen” session on Tuesday, but on the main mound at the ballpark in preparation for his second start for the Skeeters, which will be Friday, September 7 in Sugar Land against the Long Island Ducks. If you have a ticket to Tuesday’s game, you’ll be able to come in at 4:45 p.m. to watch Clemens’ workout. The entire press release about the event is pasted below and after the jump, so check it out for all the details.
Speculation continues to swirl around what the future holds for Clemens, as word as also broken the Astros will scout his next start, as they apparently did his first one. If he pitches well against the struggling Ducks, a big-league return during the final month of the season may become a reality for the 50-year-old Clemens. Stay tuned, and see you on Tuesday for the most anticipated bullpen session in Sovereign Bank Stadium history.
