WASHINGTON, DC - Feb. 13: Former Major League pitcher Roger Clemens consults attorneys Rusty Hardin and Larry Breuer during the House Oversight and Government Reform hearing on steroid use among MLB players. Clemens' wife, Debbie, is at left. The two key figures in an escalating investigation of doping in Major League Baseball came to Capitol Hill Wednesday to tell opposing stories, publicly and under oath, about whether a former ace pitcher used steroids and human growth hormone during his baseball career. Roger Clemens and former trainer Brian McNamee offered diametrically opposing accounts the hearing that Chairman Henry A. Waxman, D-Calif., had wanted to cancel. Waxman said in his opening remarks that after weeks of lengthy depositions by ballplayers, evidence drudged up by committee investigators, and a flurry of sworn affidavits, his instinct "was to cancel the hearing and release a report." But the panel went forward with the hearing at the behest of Clemens' attorneys, the chairman said. (Photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly)
