Roger Clemens Minor League Game Could Be Broadcast By ESPN

Roger Clemens' return to baseball with the minor-league Sugar Land (Texas) Skeeters Saturday night might be broadcast by ESPN Classic, according to the Houston Chronicle.

ESPN's two main networks are scheduled to air high school football and WNBA basketball Saturday night. ESPN Classic usually airs repeated sports documentaries on Saturday night, which could free up the tertiary network to air Clemens' start against the Bridgeport (Conn.) Bluefish.

The woefully bad Houston Astros, looking for any kind of feel-good story while being on pace for their worst season in franchise history, are rumored to be scouting the 50-year-old Clemens for a potential September start. A major-league game would push his Hall of Fame candidacy back to 2018. Clemens hasn't pitched in the majors since 2007, when he went 6-6 with a 4.18 ERA in 17 starts with the New York Yankees.
