Roger Clemens will be making another start for the Atlantic League's Sugar Land Skeeters on Sept. 7. Fans of the team are so excited for the prospect of the 50-year-old Cy Young award-winner taking the the mound again, they are considering making sacrifices to watch him, according to chron.com.
"All right," said season-ticket holder John Locke, a 77-year-old retiree who has missed only one game during the Skeeters’ inaugural season.
Informed of the news while at Constellation Field watching former major leaguer Scott Kazmir pick up a 6-1 win for the Skeeters over Bridgeport on Wednesday, Locke contemplated pushing back a scheduled trip to Maryland by a day so he can watch Clemens pitch.
Clemens went 3.1 innings and struck out two batters in his debut with the Skeeters last Saturday.
