Intro

A tall, handsome left-hander, Andy Pettitte was an important member of the Yankee dynasty which won four World Series titles in five seasons from 1996-2000. Glaring out from under the brim of his cap, he won 21 games twice, and stared down enemy batters for 13 post-season victories. In 2008, Pettitte admitted to using steroids at one point in his career, and also implicated his close friend Roger Clemens of doing the same.
