Clemens Lawyer Finds Right Pitch in Latest Acquittal, by Ashby Jones and Devlin Barrett

Baseball great, Roger Clemens, “had been charged with lying to Congress about using steroids, and the government relied heavily on testimony of Brian McNamee, a former trainer of Mr. Clemens,” who said that he had injected the player with steroids in 1998, 2000 and 2001.  Mr. Hardin, Clemen’s lawyer’s  investigations were supported by his “homespun courtroom deliveries.”  He found the “right pitch.”  Clemens was found not guilty.  

On the mound baseball pitchers search for the right pitch to throw to the batters.  Clemen’s lawyer found the right pitch in his delivery to a jury not a baseball batter.
