Clemens jersey removed from Berra museum

A Roger Clemens jersey featured in a display honoring the Yankees World Series championship teams from the late 1990s has been removed from the Yogi Berra Museum in Little Falls, N.J. Museum director David Kaplan said the decision to remove the jersey was not made to generate publicity, but was done in response to allegations of steroid use by Clemens. “There are a lot of unresolved issues involving Roger and it was difficult for us to give answers to the kids coming through the museum,” Kaplan said. The museum, which opened in 1998, offers several educational programs for youths, including one that focuses on sports medicine and nutrition and examines the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Clemens’ jersey had been displayed alongside former teammates Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera. Clemens was a member of the 1999 and 2000 Yankees championship teams. Kaplan said Berra was comfortable with the decision.
