Biggio, Pettitte, Clemens kids share special bond
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- We know the kind of bond Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and Craig Biggio had during that magical run with the Astros, but what about their kids?
A friendship blossomed at Minute Maid Park between three families tied together during the best run in Astros history.
Pettite, Clemens and Biggio's kids spent much of their childhood together at Minute Maid Park and remain close
"All the time, when I would get out of school, we would go," Biggio's son Cavan said. "My mom would let me go with my dad. We would go, just hang out on the field, just go hangout in the clubhouse the entire time; play catch and watch them do everything."
"It's awesome sitting at the ballpark, growing up -- six, seven years old, watching home run derbies," Clemens' sons Kacy and Kody said.
Four of the Astro legends sons are currently excelling at the same time in high school baseball, which means a lot of scoreboard watching.
"You know, it's cool to check Twitter," Kacy Clemens said. "Cavan hit a bomb; Josh [Pettitte] is doing great."
"I think it's awesome what Cavan and Kacy are doing. They are really high up the radar," Pettitte's son Josh said. "I think they are both going to do great things. They will play collegiate ball, but I think they can go pro."
"They are doing work," Kody Clemens said. "Josh is chunking on the mound."
Time, space, distance and a courtroom has gotten in the way of their friendship, but there is still a lot of love there.
"Growing up, we used to be the best of friends," Josh Pettitt said. "We had a great time. We spent every Astros game playing afterward together. Now we are all kind of going our separate ways."
"We separated after my dad stop playing and Craig stopped playing, but it's so cool to see how everyone is doing," Kacy Clemens said.
By the way, all three families saw their teams win in the first round of the high school playoffs.
