Roger Clemens watches from field level as Texas loses to TCU 9-5 in college baseball at Disch-Falk Field on March 26, 2016.
The Kansas Stars roster will also feature a pair of former Wichita State Shocker baseball players; Nate Robertson and Koyie Hill.
Roger Clemens is part of a roster of former All-Stars and MVPs to play in the series..
The rest of the team is filled with former All-Stars (Roy Oswalt, Tim Hudson, J.D. Drew), World Series heroes (Josh Beckett), dinosaur truthers (Carl Everett) and seemingly random journeymen (Ryan Kohlmeier, Barry Wesson).
Robertson, who pitched for the Detroit Tigers in the 2006 World Series against the Cardinals, is now the co-owner of the Wichita Wingnuts of the American Association. He's also the Stars' youngest player, and the only one on the team without Major League Baseball experience.
Needless to say, folks with the NBC World Series are pretty thrilled to have Chipper and the other ex-MLB players coming to town.
"I picture this being more of a backyard, group-of-guys get-together to go have a lot of fun and compete", LaRoche told The Wichita Eagle.
The 82nd NBC World Series is scheduled for July 29-August 13 at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium.
The Stars play their first game at 9:30 p.m. CT on August 6 during the second week of pool play. LaRoche's team plays again on Monday, Aug. 8 and Wednesday, Aug. 10, both at 7 p.m.
"I've known Nate a long time, and he and Adam reached out to many of these players to see if they would want to join".
