Prosecutors recently said that needles and cotton balls, claimed to include DNA of Roger Clemens, were faked.

The former trainer of Clemens, Brian McNamee, claimed that he used to inject the star pitcher with anabolic steroids.

“It’s a fact of life that sometimes when people reach the mountain, there is an unwillingness to give them equal consideration when people come down on them,” Hardin said. “And that’s what happened with Roger.”
