    Opening arguments began Wednesday in the trial of former Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens.

    The judge declared a mistrial in baseball star Roger Clemens' perjury trial over inadmissible evidence shown to jurors.

    U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said Clemens could not be assured a fair trial after prosecutors showed jurors evidence against his orders in the second day of testimony.

    Walton scheduled a Sept. 2 hearing to determine whether to hold a new trial.
