Koby Clemens still keeps bid for majors alive


He is only 25 years old, but Koby Clemens has the look of a journeyman. The son of seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens occasionally may flash his father’s trademark smile, which seems to exude cockiness and confidence, but after years of toiling in the minors, and listening to endless inquiries about allegations swirling around his father, Koby’s grin more often than not indicates humility and sincerity. “I’ve had a very blessed life,’’ said Clemens. “I’m enjoying every opportunity I get. I’m lucky to be where I’m at right now.’’ Drafted in 2005 by his hometown Houston Astros, Clemens has been everywhere from Lexington, Ken., to Waipahu, Hawaii, in pursuit of a dream that seems to be slipping away.
