This is a big loss for the Yankees.
Andy Pettitte, who has helped the Yankees make it to five World Series Championships, will be retiring from baseball.
"I'm done with baseball. I'm going to not be pitching for the Yankees every fifth day anymore."
Pettitte’s wife said that this was a really tough decision for him, but that his heart isn’t in the right place to continue playing.
"I am looking forward to this next chapter in my life. And right now I don't want it to be anything except hanging out with my family."
Baseball will miss him!
