Roger Clemens, Guilty or Innocent

Former Houston Astros Pitcher, Roger Clemens, who had gone on to play for the New York Yankees has been accused by his previous trainer Brian McNamee of allowing him to inject Clemens with steroids, more than a dozen times during the course of three seasons. Clemens denied this accusation stating that he was only injected with pain medication and vitamin B-12. His career revived when he was 36, becoming the greatest player of all time. He continues to play baseball even though he’s in his mid 40’s and considered too old. Clemens was also one of the richest athletes in North America in 2007 being paid $19 million by the New York Yankees, although he spent half the season nursing his injuries.
