Roger Clemens was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame on Thursday. And the seven-time Cy Young award winner said he isn’t worried about whether he will be elected to the national shrine in Cooperstown.
Clemens pitched 13 years for Boston and won as many games in a Red Sox uniform as Cy Young himself. But he had a bitter split with the team in 1996, and he seemed to seal the divorce when he went to the rival New York Yankees two years later.
Clemens hasn’t gotten the vote for the Baseball Hall of Fame because of evidence he used performance-enhancing drugs.
But the Red Sox honored him before Thursday night’s game against the Houston Astros, along with Pedro Martinez and Nomar Garciaparra. Longtime announcer Joe Castiglione was also being honored.
