Clemens' jersey removed from Yogi Museum

The Yogi Berra Museum's director David Kaplan announced that museum has taken down Roger Clemens' jersey from a display honoring the Yankees teams of the late 1990s.

From the AP via Yankees.com:

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 that resulted in Wednesday's Congressional hearing where the seven-time Cy Young Award winner testified.

"It was the fact that 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.

This makes sense. It's always about the kids.
