Former MLB All-Star Pitcher
Career Highlights: Considered one of the most dominant pitchers in major league baseball history, Roger Clemens pitching records are unprecedented. An 11-time All-Star, Clemens won seven Cy Young Awards, the most of any pitcher. In an illustrious 24-year career, Clemens played for Boston (1984-96), Toronto (1997-98), New York Yankees (1999-2003, 2007) and Houston (2004-06). A two-time World Series Champion with the Yankees (1999 & 2000), Clemens was a seven-time ERA leader, five-time American League strikeout leader, four-time MLB wins leader, two-time triple crown leader (leading in wins, ERA and strikeouts), and was the 1986 American League MVP. With the Yankees in 2001, Clemens became the first pitcher to start a season 20-1 and won his sixth Cy Young. Clemens announced his retirement in 2003, but came back to play for his hometown Houston Astros for three seasons, winning his seventh Cy Young Award in 2004 (oldest winner at age 42). He also led the Astros to their first World Series in 2005, which they lost to the Chicago White Sox. Clemens finished his career with 354 wins, a 3.12 ERA and 4,672 strikeouts, the third-most all-time.
