AUSTIN — The youngest son of Longhorn legend Roger Clemens is having a career season.
Kody Clemens is currently tied for third all-time in University of Texas baseball history with 19 home runs this season.
The junior second baseman is also a semifinalist for college baseball’s Golden Spikes Award: an award given to the top amateur baseball player in the country.
Clemens is the heart and soul of the Big 12 Conference’s regular-season champion. He is expected to be selected in the early rounds of Major League Baseball’s June amateur draft.
So, this upcoming postseason as a Longhorn is of importance to him.
His brother, Kacy, also played for Texas and experienced the College World Series in Omaha as a freshman.
Their father experienced the College World Series as well and led UT to a national title during his storied career as the pitcher for Texas in the early 1980’s.
