In a city that went 33 years without a major league baseball team, picking a jury without bias toward Roger Clemens has proven to be a cinch.
Most of the jurors selected for Clemens' perjury retrial Monday were not baseball fans, and many had never heard of him.
Clemens is accused of lying when he told Congress in 2008 he never used steroids or human growth hormone.
In an opening statement, the prosecutor depicted Clemens as a man who told lies and "other lies to cover up lies." The defense will make its opening statement Tuesday.
