This is according to ESPN’s Michael Kay who twittered, “I have learned that Andy Pettitte will officially retire tomorrow. Mote details to come….Michael”
This is sad news for Yankee fans and the franchise, as Pettitte has been a staple playing 14 years in pinstripes.
The Yankees “Core Four” will never play baseball together again, after winning five World Series rings together.
Pettitte will be sorely missed, but he has certainly earned to walk away with his head held high.
The press conference’s official time has yet to be announced.
