"Yes, he did," Eileen McNamee said. She acknowledged that she called her husband and told him to go after Clemens.
The next day, around 3 a.m., Brian McNamee retrieved the evidence that he said had been kept in and around a beer can inside a FedEx box for more than six years, the remnants of an alleged steroids injection of Clemens in 2001, which is the key physical evidence against Clemens.
"I asked him where he was going, and he said he was heading to his lawyers, and he was out the door," she recalled.
Brian McNamee had testified that he decided to turn over the evidence to federal authorities against Clemens "because of what he did to my son."
