Roger Clemens still dogged by N.Y. steroids case

NEW YORK — Despite Roger Clemens’ victory last year in his perjury case, a defamation lawsuit filed against the former Yankees ace more than four years ago in federal court in Brooklyn is threatening to keep alive allegations that he used steroids and cheated on his wife.

A magistrate judge in the civil case last week ordered lawyers for Clemens to turn over government documents to the plaintiff, former strength coach Brian McNamee, including 22 FBI reports and notes from an Internal Revenue Service agent that refer to Clemens’ alleged affairs. The lawyers had argued the material, some based on FBI interviews of various women, was made up of “inadmissible rumors.”

Bayern Munich makes low-key return with trophy

MUNICH — Bayern Munich made a low-key return to the windy and rain-swept Bavarian capital on Sunday after its Champions League triumph over Bundesliga rival Borussia Dortmund at Wembley.

A red-and-white Bayern scarf was painted above the cockpit of the jumbo Airbus 380 plane under the words, “Congratulations” as it landed with a delay.

Outgoing coach Jupp Heynckes and captain Philipp Lahm took the cup down the stairs from the plane onto a red carpet before being driven away from the airport in the team bus.

A few dozen airport and airline workers welcomed the team back. Bayern still has to play the German Cup final on Saturday and the club did not want a big ceremony. The team had a party at its London hotel after winning Saturday’s final 2-1.

The plane parked at an isolated spot, out of sight of fans.

Overnight, about 150,000 fans celebrated the team’s fifth Champions League title in a street party.

Bayern won the Bundesliga championship and can complete a unique treble for a German team if it beats Stuttgart in the German Cup final at Berlin’s Olympic stadium on Saturday.

It will be the last match for Heynckes as coach of Bayern. He will be replaced in June by former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola.

Boston Marathoner gets to finish at Indy 500

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A suburban Detroit runner whose Boston Marathon finish was blocked by the bombing attack is getting a chance to run in front of an even bigger crowd at the Indianapolis 500.

Nancy Smith of Macomb County’s Shelby Township was one of about 35 Boston Marathon participants who got a chance to run on a half-mile stretch of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday before the start of the auto race.

Indy 500 organizers say the runners also come from Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. They were covering a stretch of track from Turn 4 to the Yard of Bricks.

The participants were halted short of the finish of the 26.2-mile race in Boston on April 15 by officials after two explosions near the finish line on Boylston Street.
