Roger Clemens, Josh Beckett Among Ex-MLBers On Team Playing In NBC World Series

Roger Clemens is making another baseball comeback, but it’s not what you think.

No, Clemens isn’t making another return to the majors. He’s not even suiting up for the Sugar Land Skeeters. Clemens, however, is headlining a roster of random ex-big leaguers to play in a baseball tournament you’ve probably never heard of.

Clemens is the main attraction on a team almost entirely made up of former Major League Baseball players who will play at the National Baseball Congress World Series. Of the team’s 25 players, 24 of them played in the big leagues. The only player who didn’t is Koby Clemens, the son of the legendary pitcher.

There’s no shortage of former Boston Red Sox players on the roster in addition to Clemens. Also included are Josh Beckett, J.D. Drew, Brad Penny, Carl Everett, Justin Germano and Adam LaRoche. Former All-Star pitchers Roy Oswalt and Tim Hudson also are on the roster.

The tournament field features mostly college baseball summer teams and begins July 29 in Wichita, Kan.
