Clemens joins the Atlantic League’s Sugar Land Skeeters pitching rotation that already features former major leaguers Scott Kazmir, Tim Redding and Jason Lane.

“Any time you can add a player of Roger’s caliber is extremely exciting,” said Skeeters President Matt O’Brien.

“Our inaugural season has been extremely memorable, and this is just going to add to it.”

Clemens will be available to answer questions from media at Constellation Field at 11:00am on Tuesday, August 21. The press conference will take place in the upper level of the stadium – the Insperity Club.
