Talk about irony. Roger Clemens was scheduled to speak to the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association next month. The topic? His workout regimen.
Now the president of the association, Jim Long, is having second thoughts in the wake of the Mitchell Report. There will be a meeting on Tuesday to decide whether Clemens should attend.
“A dark cloud has been put over Roger’s head and 99.9 percent of the media says he’s guilty even though he says he’s innocent,” Long told the Associated Press. “That presents a problem for our association. It has to come first over a player or coach.”
