Well they came and got me out of Texas. I can tell you it’s a privilege to be back. I’ll be talkin’ to you all soon.—Roger Clemens
From owner’s box, Clemens makes dramatic announcement over the Stadium PA during 7th inning stretch.
Players, fans, appear shocked. Huge roar from crowd follows. Pettitte and Jeter were in the dark. Roger credits their recruiting efforts, desire to play with his “teammates,” in NY, and for a contender. Also excited to work with young Yankee pitchers. No details on contract terms.
Update: ESPN reports the Yanks to pay Clemens $4.5M/month
