Roger Clemens was a durable and effective pitcher well into his 40s. Whether his unusual success well into his wonder years is due to hard work or other factors is still widly debated, but as “The Rocket” makes his return to the mound with the Sugar Land Skeeters later this week, he’s certainly got something left in the tank.
