WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The former trainer who accused Roger Clemens of using performance-enhancing drugs could have his story supported by Andy Pettitte.
A lawyer for trainer Brian McNamee says he believes Pettitte
will tell Congress he discussed human growth hormone with Clemens
between the 2001 and 2002 seasons. Attorney Earl Ward says Pettitte
talked about HGH with McNamee following a conversation with
Pettitte's meeting with a congressional committee investigating
drug use in baseball was postponed until Monday.
McNamee said in last month's Mitchell Report that he injected
Clemens at least 16 times with steroids or HGH in 1998, 2000 and
2001. McNamee also implicated Pettitte, who admitted two days after
the Mitchell Report was released that he tried HGH for two days in
Clemens has denied using HGH or steroids, but Ward is hopeful
Pettitte will corroborate McNamee's statements concerning Clemens.
