Roger Clemens will address the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association, after all. "We told him we want him to come," Jim Long president of the group told Houston TV station KRIV. "It's not for us to make any other decision." "We're not going to do Roger that way. All of the coaches involved want Roger to speak at our convention." It had been reported that the group was considering removing Clemens as a speaker after he was implicated in the Mitchell Report. The right-hander, who pitched for the New York Yankees last season, was the biggest name linked by former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell to illegal use of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.
