15 Most Spectacular Falls From Grace

15. Roger Clemens

When he retired in 2007, he was in the discussion of greatest pitchers in baseball history. Less than 5 years later, he is seen as more of a delusional cheater, a man who can’t come to grips with reality, and his once imminent pass to the Baseball Hall of Fame is now very much in doubt. In 2008, he told a Congressional hearing that he had never used steroids. After a book came out in 2009 detailing his steroid use in his playing days, he was put on trial for perjury and obstruction of Congress. Though it ended in a mistrial, Clemens came through the trial with very few supporters left, and instead a nation that thinks that the best hitter (Barry Bonds) and best pitcher (Clemens) of the past 25 years were both steroid users. —Johnny Goodtimes
