The New York Daily News has reported that baseball star Roger Clemens and Mindy McCready were romantically involved for a decade, beginning when McCready was 15 and Clemens was 28. The romance was mentioned in a defamation lawsuit filed by Clemens in January against his former personal trainer. Clemens' attorney told the Daily News, "He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her. He's considered her a close family friend." McCready released her first single, "Ten Thousand Angels," in 1996, when she was 20. Her second single, "Guys Do It All the Time," reached No. 1 a few months later.
