Report: Texas Charity Parts Ways with Troubled Clemens

Roger Clemens reportedly has been asked to end his involvement with a charity golf tournament he's promoted for four years.
The Daily News of New York reports the request comes as the fallout from the Mitchell Report continues to haunt the seven-time Cy Young award winner.
Clemens has helped raise millions of dollars for charities associated with the Giff Nielsen Day of Golf for Kids. But this year's tournament was held November 11th at Houston's Shadow Hawk Golf Club without the Katy resident.
Nielsen, a former Houston Oilers quarterback and now a Houston sportscaster, says "Roger Clemens is no longer affiliated with the tournament." He added that "We decided we would go our separate ways until his off-field stuff is settled."
Clemens has denied using performance-enhancing drugs since he was identified in George Mitchell's report on drug use in baseball.

Federal prosecutors also are looking into whether Clemens committed perjury when he testified under oath in front of a congressional committee that he never used performance-enhancing drugs.
