Roger Clemens Houston Astros MLB Canvas Art Poster Print

Roger Clemens - Professional Baseball Player

Roger Clemens was born on August 4, 1962, in Dayton, Ohio. In 1983, he joined the Red Sox. In 1986, he achieved a 24-4 record, earned the Cy Young Award and was named Most Valuable Player. In 2004, after stepping out of retirement, he pitched for the Astros. Over the next three years, he led the club to its first-ever World Series. He returned to the New York Yankees in 2007 for his final season.

 

After taking just a year to reach the big leagues, Clemens experienced a trying first couple of years in Boston that was slowed by injuries and tough losses. In 1986, however, everything came together for the young pitcher, as he assembled a 24-4 record, earned the Cy Young Award and was named Most Valuable Player, a rare accomplishment. It was the start of a period of dominance for Clemens that would see him win two more Cy Young Awards, in 1987 and 1991, respectively, while playing with the Red Sox.

Following the 1996 season, Clemens, who was perceived to be out of shape and close to the end of his career, left Boston via free agency for a lucrative deal with the Toronto Blue Jays. In his first year with Toronto, a newly rejuvenated Clemens once again dominated opponents, finishing the season with an American League-best of 21 wins and his fourth Cy Young Award.

After another mesmerizing season, in 1998—Clemens led the league in wins, strikeouts, and ERA to earn a fifth Cy Young Award—Toronto traded Clemens to the New York Yankees. In 1999, he helped lead New York to a World Series win, the first title of his career. A second championship followed in 2000, as did his sixth Cy Young Award in 2001.

In 2004, after stepping out of retirement, Clemens pitched for his hometown Houston Astros. Over the next three years, he earned a seventh Cy Young Award and led the club to its first-ever World Series appearance. Following another flirtation with retirement, Clemens returned to the New York Yankees in 2007, for what turned out to be his final season.

Throughout his long career, Clemens won 354 regular season games and recorded 4,672 strikeouts. Twice, in 1986 and 1996, he struck out 20 batters in a game—a statistic that no pitcher before him had achieved.
