Clemens in Red Sox Hall

– Roger Clemens was inducted into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame on Thursday. And the seven-time Cy Young award winner said he isn’t worried about whether he will be elected to the national shrine in Cooperstown.

Clemens pitched 13 years for Boston and won as many games in a Red Sox uniform as Cy Young. But he had a bitter split with the team in 1996, and he seemed to seal the divorce when he went to the rival Yankees two years later.

The Red Sox also honored Pedro Martinez, Nomar Garciaparra and longtime announcer Joe Castiglione.
