Barry Bonds, Jose Canseco among potential witnesses in new Clemens perjury trial

Comments

WASHINGTON - Prosecutors said they might call former baseball players Barry Bonds and Jose Canseco, and current baseball commissioner Bud Selig and New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, as witnesses in the Roger Clemens perjury case. The defence said it might call former Clemens teammates Paul O'Neill, Jorge Posada and Mike Stanton, and baseball writer Peter Gammons.

Those were among the more than 100 potential witnesses read on the first day of jury selection in Clemens' new trial, with a larger prosecution team taking on the famed pitcher following last year's embarrassing mistrial. The government will again try to prove Clemens lied to Congress when he said he never used performance-enhancing drugs.

The legendary former pitcher, who famously revelled in staring down hitters, will face a prosecution lineup of five lawyers more than double the two from the first trial.
