8 Comments

While appearing on Michael Kay’s radio show yesterday Andy Pettitte made it very clear that he has no plans to come out of retirement, saying: “I don’t think I will ever pitch again.”

Pettitte added that he’s “not dying to be playing baseball right now” and is “absolutely loving being home.”

He left the door open just slightly, basically giving a “never say never” answer when pressed further, but also explained that “I’m not playing baseball this year” and “I’m committed to my family, I’m where in my heart I need to be.”

Pettitte retired at age 38 after going 11-3 with a 3.28 ERA in 21 starts for the Yankees last season.
