Roger Clemens' youngest son Kody is set to make his major league debut today for the Detroit Tigers, and Dad intends to be there

All four of the seven-time Cy Young Award winner's sons attended Memorial High School in Houston, and the legendary pitcher himself starred at Spring Woods High School in Houston.

Kody Clemens, a 26-year-old infielder/outfielder, is expected to start at second base in Game 2 of a Tigers doubleheader today against the Minnesota Twins.

He and his brother Koby both followed their dad's path of Houston high school baseball star to the University of Texas to Major League Baseball. 

Their brother Kacy also starred for Texas and now plays for the Staten Island Ferry Hawks in the Atlantic League. Kory is the only Clemens son who didn't go on to play professional baseball.

Ranked the Tigers' No. 18 prospect, Kody Clemens crushed two homers earlier this month playing for the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens.
