Roger Clemens joked Friday night that his batting-throwing form "was impeccable."
Andrew Marchand, who covered the event for ESPNNewYork.com, writes:
During the banquet, Clemens reiterated that after he hit Piazza, he called over to the Mets' clubhouse to check on him. Clemens didn't finish the story, but it's been reported previously that Piazza did not accept Clemens' call."I think I pitched 24 years in the major leagues and I think I missed up above the shoulders three times," Clemens said. "Just like I tell any kids or any professional or anytime I get to talk in public, you don't pitch inside to hit people."
