A jury consisting of 10 women, two men, and four alternates have been seated for the Roger Clemens perjury trial, which is set to have opening statements Wednesday.

The New York Times reports one of the jurors is the cousin of Al Bumbry, who played in the majors from 1972-85, mostly for the Baltimore Orioles. Bumbry was a coach for the Red Sox when Clemens played for them.

Included in the list of jurors are reportedly a mid-50's female yoga teacher, who worked at a U.S. attorney's office in Portland, Oregon; a female retired public schools counselor; a female who is a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and Michael Vick and said the quarterback was "done wrong" by his conviction for being involved in a dogfighting ring.

Clemens pleaded not guilty last August to charges he lied to Congress about his alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs. He has been charged with three counts of making false statements, two counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of Congress.

If convicted on all charges, Clemens, who won 354 games in the majors, could face up to 30 years in prison. Sentencing guidelines, however, call for about 15-21 months in jail.
