Roger Clemens Speaks Publicly, Says He’s Ready to Have His Day in Court


Roger Clemens Speaks Publicly, Says He's Ready to Have His Day in Court Every year, Roger Clemens calls into the Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon. This year, in addition to sending his words of support to friends undergoing cancer treatments, he also fielded questions about his recent indictment on perjury charges.

Clemens had a lot to say on the WEEI broadcast, even claiming that his lawyer will be angry that he's revealing too much. He cleared the air as best as he could, stating that he's ready to have his day in court to defend the charges against him.

The former Red Sox, Yankees, Blue Jays and Astros ace has been charged on six different counts, all of them revolving around the fact that he apparently lied to Congress about taking steroids and HGH. Before his day in court arrives, Clemens made a statement via his Twitter account to back up his claim that he indeed never took HGH or steroids during his 24-year MLB career.

Clemens also stands behind his usage of Twitter to make the announcement, and said he is "getting up to date on all this high-tech stuff" during the radio broadcast. The former pitcher believes it was the best way to broadcast the message to his fans and followers.

Listen to Clemens' entire radio interview below, including analysis from NESN's Peter Gammons and NESN Insider Nick Cafardo during Friday Night Fenway.
