Baseball Player
    (March 24, 1958- )
    Born in St. George, Utah
    Pitcher for the Boston Red Sox (1980-88), San Diego Padres (1988-93), Colorado Rockies (1993) and Texas Rangers (1994)
    145-113 Win-Loss record
    3.92 ERA
    1,689 strikeouts
    One All-Star appearance (1987)
    While playing with Elmira in the minor leagues, he almost quit baseball after getting doused with champagne during the party to celebrate their winning the league title (1976).
    After getting chewed out on the mound by Boston manager Don Zimmer, he ran out of Baltimore's Memorial Stadium in tears (1980).
    With the Red Sox one strike away from winning the 1986 World Series, the reporters covering the Series decided to name him MVP.
    Then a ball rolled through Bill Buckner's legs, the Mets rallied to win Game Six followed by the Series, and the MVP award went to Ray Knight of the Mets instead.
    Superstitious fans noted that the letters in his name can be rearranged to spell 'B. Ruth Curse.'
    He is left handed.
    During the 1986 World Series, Darryl Strawberry said, 'Clemens is tough, but he's no Hurst.'
    After becoming a free agent, he actually took a salary cut to play with the Padres so he could be closer to his family in Utah.
    He led the National League in complete games (10 in 1989) and shutouts (4 in 1990).
    He said about his Mormon faith, 'Just because I don't smoke, don't drink and don't swear doesn't mean I can't fight and I can't compete.'
