The best news out of the New York Yankees Spring Training facility this year has to do with Andy Pettitte. Well, his son, actually. Which means nothing good has really come out of Tampa for the Yanks. But fellow staffmates of Pettitte sent their congratulations to his son Josh, after he registered a no-hitter for Deer Park high against Boerne Champion. Josh, a senior, is headed to Baylor to play ball next year in college. He struck out 10 while not allowing a single batter to reach base via a hit ball. That led to a proud papa telling everyone at camp, and then they sent out their tweets. S/O to @jpettitte21 congrats on the no hitter! — CC Sabathia (@CC_Sabathia) February 23, 2013 Big shoutout to my boy @jpettitte21 on 10ks and a NO-HITTER!!! — Joba Chamberlain (@Joba_62) February 23, 2013 Congrats @jpettitte21 on the NO NO! #boom #10Ks — Phil Hughes (@PhilHughes65) February 23, 2013 Granted, he has probably talked to some pretty famous Yanks, since his dad has been with the organization for 14 of his 17 years in the Majors, but that’s still pretty cool.
