Lately there has been no shortage of NFL and NBA news, but today Major League Baseball decided to join in on the fun when Yankees legend Andy Pettitte announced his return.
Andy Pettitte’s retirement did not last long.
The Yankees have signed Pettitte to a one-year minor league deal, according to the YES Network’s Jack Curry, who reports the deal is worth $2.5 million. Pettitte, 39, had been in camp as a special guest instructor. At that time, he admitted that being around the Yankees might raise the temptation of a comeback.
WOW. Andy Pettitte coming out of retirement to play for the Yankees again. I love him and his clubhouse leadership, good news!

Andy Pettitte is a unique figure in baseball, as he is the only person in MLB history who can do steroids and it's totally cool

Jus like that, Andy Pettitte is back! I'm sure he's in decent shape too. Could be probably be the 4th starter in the #RedSox rotation…
