Andy Lee’s Sister Alix Talks About Attending Roger Clemens’ Start for the Sugarland Skeeters

Alix Lee, my sister, was one of the 7,700+ who was in attendance for Roger Clemens' return to baseball.

One of the big stories in the sports world this past weekend was Roger Clemens’ return to professional baseball.  The 50 year old ‘rocket’ hoped to show he still had some fuel in the tank.

Clemens started for the Sugar Land Skeeters, an independent league team that plays in the Atlantic League.  Independent league or not, Clemens was quite impressive for a man old enough to join AARP.  The Rocket tossed 3 and 1/3 scoreless innings.  In 37 pitches, he allowed one hit, one walk, and struck out two Bridgeport Bluefish.

The Skeeters won the game 1-0, but that was hardly the story.  Clemens is very much open to the possibility of starting another game, and Astros’ owner Jim Crane is on the record saying he was impressed with what he saw out of the 50 year old.

There is a lot of speculation that the driving force behind Clemens’ comeback is appearing in one major league game this season so he can delay his hall of fame eligibility by another five years.  Clemens will become eligible for the first time in 2013, and will share the ballot with Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa, two other players linked to PED use.

My younger sister Alix was one of the lucky 7,724 people in attendance at Constellation Stadium.  Alix talked about how she was able to score one of the hottest tickets in town and what the atmosphere was like at the stadium.

I hope they had enough Bengay in the clubhouse for him (Clemens)
