Former MLB All-Star Pitcher
Career Highlights: Considered one of the most dominant pitchers in major league history, Roger Clemens was an 11-time All-Star and won seven Cy Young Awards, the most of any pitcher. A 24-year veteran, Clemens led the Boston Red Sox pitching staff for his first 12 years. He won the 1986 Cy Young and MVP awards, the All-Star game MVP honor, and struck out an MLB-record 20 batters in a game. He joined Toronto in 1997 and won two more Cy Young awards and the pitching triple crown twice leading the league in wins, ERA and strikeouts. Clemens was a seven-time ERA leader, five-time strikeouts leader, and four-time wins leader. Traded to the Yankees in 1999, he won two World Series titles and in 2001 became the first pitcher to start a season 20-1 and won his sixth Cy Young. Clemens, about to retire, 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, which they lost to the Chicago White Sox. Clemson finished his career with the Yankees in 2007.
