Roger Clemens calls Mindy McCready’s death ‘sad’

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — Former baseball great Roger Clemens is calling the death of country star Mindy McCready ‘‘sad news.’’

Clemens, now a special instructor with the Houston Astros, handed reporters a written statement Monday at the team’s spring training camp in Kissimmee, Fla. It says he’d heard ‘‘she was trying to get peace and direction in her life.’’ He said McCready and her manager/agent were ‘‘extremely nice’’ the ‘‘few times’’ he saw her.
