HOUSTON (AP) -- Roger Clemens shrugged off Mike Piazza's comments in his autobiography that he took karate lessons after he was beaned by the pitcher, just in case they had another confrontation.

The former New York Mets catcher discussed Clemens in his autobiography "Long Shot," which was published last Tuesday.

Clemens, at spring training as a special instructor with the Houston Astros in Kissimmee, Fla., discussed the book Sunday.
