PITCHING GREAT INDICTED ON CRIMINAL CHARGES 08/19/2010


A federal grand jury has indicted pitching great Roger Clemens on charges of making false statements and obstruction of Congress.

His former trainer, Brian McNamee, has told federal agents, baseball investigator George Mitchell and the committee that he injected Clemens more than a dozen times with steroids and human growth hormone from 1998 to 2001.

In 2008 Clemens told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, "I've been accused of something I'm not guilty of ... I have never taken steroids or HGH (human growth hormones)."

Longtime Clemens friend and pitching star Andy Pettite told congressional investigators that Clemens confided to him that he had used human growth hormone.
