PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WLNE) – Baseball legend Roger Clemens will be inducted into the PawSox Hall of Fame Friday.

He will be honored in a pre-game ceremony at McCoy Stadium before the 7:05 p.m. start of the PawSox game against the Indianapolis Indians.

Clemens was with the club for a short time — spending only two months in Pawtucket during the 1984 season — before embarking on a 24-year career in the big leagues.

“The Rocket” won a record seven Cy Young Awards, an American League MVP Award, was selected 11 times for the MLB All-Star Game, and won two World Series Championships.

Clemens played for 12 years with the Red Sox, before spending the rest of his career in Toronto, New York, and Houston. He retired as a New York Yankee in 2007.

The team says in addition to a VIP barbecue event and the on-field ceremony, Clemens will be available for a meet and greet at the PawSox Fan Center after the game.
