Andy Pettitte

Andrew Pettitte was born on June 15, 1972 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and he is presently playing for the New York Yankees in the starting pitcher position. Andrew has taken part in the Major League Baseball from 1995-2003 for the New York Yankees. After that he shifted to the Houston Astros and played from 2004-2006. In the year 2007, Andrew again came back to the Yankees, and he is the owner of four championships. Excluding 2006, he has made the playoffs each year.

Let us have a look on his records; among the major league players, Pettitte ranks in the eighth position in win-loss percentage .640. Among all Yankee players, Pettitte ranks in the fifth position for the strikeouts 1,416, in wins he tied for fourth, and 6th ranking in games started. Among the four active players, Pettitte is another one to have approximately 180 wins, winning percentage .640 along with 1,700 strikeouts. Three other players are Pedro Martinez, Roger Clemens, and Randy Johnson.

He comes from the Italian and Cajun background, and his high school studies were completed in the deer Park High School that is in Deer Park, Texas. 1990 seems to be good year for Pettitte as he helped Deer to get their win in the state title, and at the same time he met his life partner Laura. Pettitte is a father of four children; Joshua Blake born on 1994, Jared ‘98, Lexy Grace 2001, and Luke Jackson ’05. He was elected from the 22nd round of the 1990 draft by the Yankees, but instead of that he San Jacinto College North.

He signed as an amateur draft with Yankees in the year 1991, 25th May. In his Minor league career, Pettitte never lost in a single season, and the career graph is 51-22 that comes with an ERA of 2.49 in 113 starts. He is also having an ERA of 0.98 in the rookie league. When it comes to the major league performances then Pettitte is the owner of 20-game wins for two times, and the record is 21-8 for the year 1996 and 2003.

Another interesting point is that Pettitte has never lost in any major league season. He has been with the Yankees for nine seasons after his debut on April 29, 1995. Pettitte signed with the Houston Astros in 2003 against a contract of $31.5 million, and the jersey number was 21 that were worn by Roger Clemens in Toronto and Boston.
