WASHINGTON (AP) — Brian McNamee says he injected Roger Clemens with steroids about eight to 10 times when they were with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1998.

McNamee took the stand Monday and described in detail how he became intertwined with one of the most successful pitchers in baseball history. He testified that he first injected Clemens in the buttocks in Clemens’ apartment at the pitcher’s request.

McNamee was the strength and conditioning coach for the Blue Jays at the time.

McNamee is the chief witness in the trial of the seven-time Cy Young Award winner. He is the only person who will testify with firsthand knowledge of Clemens using performance-enhancing drugs.

Clemens is charged with lying to Congress when he testified in 2008 that he had never used steroids or human growth hormone.
