Rocket, a free man, sitting on the Monster
By Gordon Edes
BOSTON -- Fresh off his victory in court, former Red Sox pitcher Roger Clemens showed up in Fenway Park for Friday night's game against the Braves.
Clemens, wearing a Fenway 100 baseball cap, was sitting in the front row of the Green Monster seats in left-center field. The Braves' TV affiliate, WPCH, showed him during their telecast, and just before the fourth inning the video scoreboard showed him with the caption, "Welcome Back Roger Clemens.'' (NESN showed him shortly thereafter, with one out in the top of the fourth.)
Those fans who reacted mostly booed, though there was scattered applause.
