KISSIMMEE, Fla. >> Roger Clemens says he’s “not going to lose any sleep” over failing to make the Hall of Fame last month.
Clemens was at spring training Monday as a special instructor for the Houston Astros, and he spoke for a bit with the team’s pitchers about his mental approach to the game. Later, he watched some of the Astros throw batting practice.
The 50-year-old Clemens seemed relaxed. Clemens was acquitted last year on charges he obstructed and lied to Congress in denying he used performance-enhancing drugs to extend his career. Last month, Clemens, Barry Bonds and everyone else on the ballot fell short of the necessary 75 percent of the votes to make the Hall of Fame.
