Yankees President Randy Levine and GM Brian Cashman both declined to comment on the Roger Clemens perjury verdict.

Since the Mitchell Report came out, the Yankees have not invited Clemens to Old Timers' Day. Clemens, who is known to enjoy the nostalgia associated with such a game, would likely be interested in a return to the Bronx, where he helped win his only two World Series rings.

Clemens hasn't been fully omitted from Yankees history, but in the aftermath of the Mitchell Report they did not feature him as greatly as they might have if not for the PED accusations and the ensuing hearings and trials.

Old Timers' Day is in less than two weeks away, on Sunday, July 1. The Yankees face the White Sox.
