Staying Power

It’s hard to believe that Andy
Pettitte’s first Opening Day start — on a snowy day in 1996 — was 14 years
ago.

Maybe that time span seems
unrealistic because Pettitte’s still got it so many years later.

That may be an understatement.
Pettitte pitched six innings and did not allow a run, while only giving up five
hits in the Yanks’ home opener.

Pettitte left the game with his team
leading the Anaheim Angels, 3-0. And in the bottom of the sixth, the Yankees
tacked on two more runs to make it 5-0.

Pettitte is part of the Yankees “Core
4.” Along with Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera, Pettitte received
his fifth World Series ring today.

If Pettitte’s Opening Day performance
is an indication of things to come, 2010 will be another strong year for the
37-year-old.

I think Andy will pitch until he receives an inner message. Also, I would like to thank the Yankees & fans for their warm reception & welcome to Hedicki Matsui. At least playing on the west coast it should be a local call to home.
