08:13 AM ET 09.06 | Bring on the Ks. Roger Clemens confirms to FOX 26 Sports that when he pitches for the Skeeters on Friday in Sugar Land, his son Koby will be his catcher. Koby was released earlier this week by the Toronto Blue Jays organization so he could take part in this remarkable moment with his father. "This is cool stuff," Roger Clemens said. "Having Koby (my oldest son) back there to catch a game will be great. I'm glad he's getting the opportunity to do so. We will have many special guests there to watch. Thanks again Sugar Land." Koby Clemens is thrilled to be signing with the Skeeters and get the opportunity to be on the same field with his father in a professional baseball game.

Koby was released by the Jays because he's been scuffling around in the minors for 8 yrs now

I don't care what he does. Maybe he can pitch to Melky somewhere, that would be appropriate.

At least the Reds let Pete Jr have a cup of coffee with them. It was a good PR move that filled the stadium.

Yeah, I suppose. Pete Sr. though always impressed me with how hard he played the game.

I hope Koby has extra padding in his cathers mitt. I hear those 88mph fastballs hurt.
