Former MLB pitcher Roger Clemens released a statement after he did not receive the required 75 percent threshold on Baseball Writers' Association of America ballots to earn induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame's class of 2022.

Mark Berman, the sports director at Fox 26 Houston, relayed the message:

Clemens won seven Cy Young awards, seven ERA titles, two Triple Crowns and the 1986 American League MVP during a career that spanned from 1984-2007.

He led the majors in strikeouts from 1996-1998 and won a pair of World Series with the 1999 and 2000 New York Yankees.
