New York (AP) Roger Clemens is apologizing for unspecified mistakes in his personal life. But the seven-time Cy Young award winner steadfastly denies having an affair with a teenager.

The daily news reported last week that Clemens had a decade-long relationship with country star Mindy Mccready that began when she was 15 and an aspiring singer. The newspaper also linked Clemens to a former Manhattan bartender and a former wife of golfer John Daly.

In a statement issued by spokesman Patrick Dorton, Clemens says, “even though these articles contain many false accusations and mistakes, I need to say that I have made mistakes in my personal life for which I am sorry.” The statement continues, “I have
apologized to my family and apologize to my fans. Like everyone, I have flaws. I have sometimes made choices which have not been right.”

Clemens continues to deny Brian Mcnamee's accusations in the Mitchell report that he used performance-enhancing drugs, before players and owners agreed to ban them from baseball. He'd already filed a defamation suit against his former trainer.
