Clemens Tosses Bat At Steroids Committee
In a repeat of an infamous incident at the 2000 World Series, an enraged Roger Clemens tossed a jagged bat at lawmakers investigating steroid use on Capitol Hill Thursday.
“I don’t know how the hell he got that thing past security,” said Ron Senally, an aide to Rep Rick Sanchez of Florida, who was in the room at the time. “He just got up and tossed that thing just like he did at Mike Piazza.”
The bat sailed harmlessly over the legislators and bounced off a wall as security guards escorted the Cy Young-winner, who most recently pitched for the Yankees, out of the room. He later said the incident was “unfortunate” but did not apologize.
After a break, Clemens returned to the hearing, and began hurling lies and half-truths at a record-breaking 96 mph.
