Ex-Yankees’ Trainer Testifies in Roger Clemens Trial

The longtime head athletic trainer of the New York Yankees once wrote that Roger Clemens “maintains complete confidence and respect” for strength coach Brian McNamee.

Gene Monahan, who retired last year, testified Wednesday in the perjury trial of the 11-time All-Star pitcher. In 2000, Monahan wrote a letter to the Yankees manager and general manager about Clemens’ relationship with McNamee.

At the time, the Yankees were hiring McNamee as an assistant strength and conditioning coach to specifically work with Clemens.

McNamee says he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone. Clemens is accused of lying to Congress in 2008 when he denied using those substances.

The trial is in its sixth week. The government says it has four to six more witnesses to call.
