Andy Pettitte announced today that he will call his illustrious career quits on Friday according to ESPN.com. Pettitte spent most of his with the Yankees and he will be a first ballot Hall of Famer which most people don’t realize. He has also been unbeatable in the playoffs. Even in Pettitte’s last season with the Yanks he went 11-3 with a 3.28 ERA, not bad for an old man.
Some of Pettitte’s other remarkable stats;
240-138 Career Record with 2,251 strikeouts while posting a 3.88 ERA. He was twice a 20 game winner and never had a losing season.
Pettitte knew it was time to hang it up, I’m glad he chose to retire-I wouldn’t want to see him struggle through the season or even worse risk an injury.
