As promised, my write-up of the debut of Roger Clemens with the Sugar Land Skeeters.
No word if the ambulance was there in case Roger blew out his arm. My company had a group outing in the Mazda Performance Picnic Plaza. Here's our view of home plate.
Roger was announced and all the camera people ran over and then had to wait for several minutes before he actually appeared.
He struck out 3, didn't walk anybody and gave up a single. I can well imagine Roger would be effective against the collection of former weres and never will bes making up this league. The Skeeters when on to win the game 1-0. One of the Skeeters outfielders had a .111 average after getting a hit in the game. I'm not sure how much further you can fall if you're hitting .111 in the Atlantic League.
As befitting a minor league park there was all kinds of promotions, mostly involving kids, between innings. There was this weird looking collection of cartoon animals that came out between innings. They may be from a Saturday morning cartoon series.
The game was pretty dull. We left in the 7th because I was afraid it would be a nightmare getting out of the mud. Here are the current standings in the Atlantic League.
