New York Yankees great Andy Pettitte received all the love from Bombers fans when he appeared as a guest on the FOX set.
“Andy Pettitte, Andy Pettitte, Andy Pettitte.”
He introduced himself in 1995 and reacquainted himself with the Bronx faithful in a snowstorm on Opening Day 1996. By the time it was all said and done, No. 46 had helped the New York Yankees to five World Championships.
Obviously, the fans haven’t forgotten.
On the set with FOX, prior to the Yankees Game 3 ALCS matchup with the Houston Astros, fans chanted his name in glorious fashion.
The Bronx is here for their former ace Pettitte 📢

Pettitte, 47, made 438 career starts for the Yankees, winning 219 and losing 137. He pitched to a 3.94 ERA and struck out 2,020 batters in 2,796.1 total innings pitched.
As many of those 1990s Yankees did, Pettitte raised his game in October.
Pettitte remains the true definition of a Yankee, despite his three years in Houston with the current villains, the Astros.
