One of the female jurors is a cousin of former outfielder Al Bumbry, who was a coach for the Boston Red Sox when Clemens played for the team. Another woman on the jury said she believes Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was "done wrong" in his criminal conviction in connection with
dogfighting.

Four other people were seated as alternate jurors in case any of the 12 can't serve.

Prosecutors and Clemens' defense team removed 20 people from the pool of 36 jurors, offering no public explanation for their decisions.

The jury took shape after four days of questioning by U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton and lawyers for both sides. Opening arguments are scheduled for Wednesday.
