Not long after dad Andy got done throwing a 24-pitch batting practice session on Friday in Tampa, Josh Pettitte put on his own pitching display.The Deer Park (Texas) High School senior no-hit the Boerne Champion Greyhounds 9-0, scattering 10 strikeouts and walking just one."What a fun game to be apart of," the 6'1" righty said on Twitter following the game. But probably equally as fun...the congratulatory messages the young Pettitte received from his dad's New York Yankees teammates.  I mean, it's not every day that a Texas high schooler gets tweets from CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain, right?Pettitte is heading to Baylor University in the fall having made his intentions known this past November."Josh knows how to pitch. He has a great presence on the mound and command of three pitches," Deer Park coach Chris Rupp said. "He is a good student with a good work ethic and will only continue to get better. Josh is very coachable and will be a good college pitcher.”Last season, as a junior, Pettitte went 4-0 with a 0.89 ERA, striking out 32 in 23 innings pitched.
