Monday marked the beginning of famed baseball pitcher Roger Clemens’ second perjury trial over the charge that he lied to Congress in 2008 about taking performance enhancing drugs. The first trial ended in mistrial when prosecutors used inadmissible evidence.

He is charged with three counts of making false statements, two counts of perjury, and one count of obstruction of Congress. He denied using steroids, but former batboy Kirk Radomski claims he provided Clemens with the drugs and Brian McNamee will be a key witness in claiming to have injected Clemens and saved the needles. Clemens’ friend Andy Pettitte will also be a witness that he heard Clemens refer to his use of them, though Clemens counters that despite being “a very honest fellow,” his friends “misremembers” their 1999 conversation.

The judge will be former football athlete Judge Reggie Walton and Clemens lead attorney will be the charming Rusty Hardin.


The jury screening process will ask such questions as:

Are you a fan or do you have strong opinions about Major League Baseball?

Have you ever attended a Major League Baseball game?
