NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — How much longer will Andy Pettitte pitch?
He’s about to begin his 18th season in the big leagues, and he doesn’t at all appear to be on his last legs.
The three-time All-Star faced batters for the first time this spring in a simulated game on Sunday, and he expressed optimism that he can keep hurling for years to come.
“I’m loving being back,” the 40-year-old said. “I’m excited about the season and this organization and trying to help us win another championship. If I stay healthy, I feel like I can pitch for a long time. It doesn’t mean I want to, but I feel like I could.”
