HOUSTON (AP) -- Roger Clemens showed up at the Houston Astros'
minicamp today and sidestepped a question about his upcoming appearance before a House committee investigation performance-enhancing drugs in baseball.

"I'm not going to talk about that," was Clemens' response. He added, "I'm doing it the right way and do what I need to do."

The seven-time Cy Young Award winner has been invited to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee for a deposition or transcribed statement on Tuesday and public testimony eight days later. His former personal trainer, Brian McNamee, and former teammate Andy Pettitte have also been asked to appear.

McNamee said in last month's Mitchell Report on drug use in baseball that he injected Clemens at least 16 times with steroids or HGH. Clemens has repeatedly denied the accusations.

Clemens has a personal services contract with the Astros that kicks in following his retirement as a player. His oldest son, Koby, is a minor leaguer in the Astros system and is participating in the camp.
