NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte will retire after this season.
The team announced Pettitte's decision in a news release Friday, hours before opening its final homestand of the season. The 41-year-old left-hander says he has exhausted himself mentally and physically and knows the time is right.
Just days after earning his third career World Series title, St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa announced Monday that he is retiring.
He managed for 33 seasons, with stints with the White Sox and Athletics before joining the Cardinals in 1996. La Russa, 67, is third all-time in post-season wins and third in regular season wins.
