The 50-year-old Clemens was throwing an 87 mph fastball according to his agent Randy Hendricks. Clemens and Skeeters manager Gary Gaetti have been talking about this “for months,” Hendricks said.
Clemens hasn’t played for a team since pitching for the Yankees in 2007 at the age of 45. He went 6-6 in 18 games with a 4.18 ERA that season.
The Skeeters are playing their first season in the independent Atlantic League and already boast another former major league pitcher, Scott Kazmir, who has struggled.
