These are strange times we live in. Not only is 50-year-old Roger Clemens pitching in a professional baseball game this Saturday, but the Astros are sending a scout to put a radar gun on him.

Today Clemens was introduced by the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League. He will take the mound Saturday night at the Skeeters' home park in Sugar Land, a suburb southwest of Houston.

Did I mention Clemens is 50 years old?

Earlier today, he spoke into a microphone.

"I'm 50 years old, so we're just going to go out and have fun with this, make it fun for the fans," Clemens said. "I'm sure i'll get some jabs from the boys at home about it. They've already started on me, so we'll have to see if we can have some fun, get it done, have a good time. I've been to the major leagues and back and retired and un-retired a couple of times, so I wouldn't even consider about thinking that far ahead."
