This dad strikes out

When pitcher Roger Clemens "retired" last year from the Yankees to be with his family. I wondered how long that would last. Well, ESPN provided us with the rumors in December that he was getting itchy to play again. 78 days after his last pitch at Yankee Stadium, he was coaxed out of retirement to join the Houston Astros in his home state. (I was glad to see him stay away from the Yankees as I am a Sox fan)

So how could he stay with his family and still play ball? Major League Baseball reported in January at their site that to keep his family promise, the 6 time Cy-Young winner was able to add a clause in his contract that allows him to stay home with his family even when the Astros go on the road. His strategy turned out to be a winning formula as Clemens has started out with a 6-0 record this year. USA Today had a nice article earlier this week detailing Roger's day on raising his kids (they are all in grade school, so no diaper changing, bottle feeding routine story here) on how this arrangement is working. Although he has to hide out while attending his kids baseball games he does keep his promise as well as any pro-celebrity athlete could.

Note: Clemens named his 4 kids starting with a "K," as it was the symbol for strikeout. The names are Kory, Koby, Kacy and Kody. If you like coming up with names we have a dad at the message board looking for names that begin with an "A" for his boy.
