Indictment of Baseball's Clemens is Solid, Prosecutors Tell Judge

The case that would-be Hall of Famer Roger Clemens lied to Congress about HGH and steroids is solid, and should go to trial, prosecutors told a federal judge considering a motion by the defense to drop charges. Clemens, who won 354 games and seven Cy Young Awards in a storied career that ended in disgrace, is accused of lying to lawmakers in 2008 as they probed the use of performance-enhancing drugs in baseball. Clemens, ever defiant, recently tweeted: "I never took HGH or steroids. And I did not lie to Congress." According to the Bergen Record's Bob Klapisch, Clemens, whose trial is set for July, faces 30 years in prison and a fine of $1.5 million. And no Hall of Fame.
