Roger Clemens, a.k.a. William Roger Clemens, was born August 4, 1962, in Dayton, Ohio. A Major League Baseball star, he broke into the Major Leagues as a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox; he pitched for them for 13 consecutive seasons. His pitches consistently clocked in the mid-90s (MPH), and he led the Red Sox to the World Series. In 1986, he set a new Major League record by striking out 20 batters in nine innings. He has won seven Cy Young Awards, more than any other player. Roger signed with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1997 and pitched for them for two seasons; he also played for the New York Yankees. Roger has appeared on many magazine covers and played himself in the movie Anger Management. He married Debbie Clemens in 1984 and the couple has four children. Rumors of steroid use plagued Roger in the latter part of his baseball career, and he denied these allegations before Congress. In August 2010, a federal grand jury indicted him on six felony counts, including perjury and obstruction of Congress, for lying about his alleged steroid use. He pled not guilty; a trial date has been set for April 5, 2011.
