New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte has announced that he will retire at the end of this season.  The team made the announcement on Friday.

Pettitte, now 41, says he is mentally and physically exhausted and the time to retire is now.

Pettitte first retired after the 2010 season but made his comeback after just one year away from the Yankees.

Pettitte hold the major league record with 19 postseason wins, many of those coming during the incredible post-season dominance by the New York Yankees in the mid to late 90's.

Andy Pettitte will make one more start with the Yanks this weekend when they travel to his hometown of Houston Texas.
