Koby Clemens Striving For AAA Roster for Toronto

LFPress.com had a feature on Koby Clemens' attempt to make the AAA roster for the Blue Jays this spring.  In the feature it is clear that Clemens still lives in the shadow of his father.  But he not only had to deal with questions about his dad, he also had to answer questions about Canadian baseball legend, Stubby Clapp.
“Man, he’s big in Memphis, he was the first Redbird player to have his number retired and they have a six-panel shot on the outfield fence of him doing his flip,” said Koby of the mural at AutoZone Park.
They also had a great quote from Kyle Drabek about the two Cy Young dads throwing BP back in Houston.
 “Roger would throw smoke and my dad was ‘pfft,’ ... nothing left,” Drabek said.
