Team History[edit]

The Sugar Land Skeeters joined the Atlantic League in 2012. They were the first team in the league outside of its traditional geographic area in the northwestern United States.

Roger Clemens signed with the Skeeters on August 12, 2012 after the fanfare surrounding his perjury trial had died down. It was portrayed as a one-time favor to manager Gary Gaetti, a close friend of Clemens'. He joined another former major leaguer, Scott Kazmir, on the team's pitching staff. Roger's son Koby Clemens also signed a short-term contract with the Skeeters, catching his father in a game on September 7th.
