ESPN: Yankees To Retire Andy Pettitte’s Number

Some Core Four ceremonies coming up:

Andy Pettitte will have his No. 46 retired by the New York Yankees and receive a plaque in Monument Park, a source confirmed to ESPN.com. Pettitte will become the 18th member of the Yankees to have his number retired. Pettitte was known for his big-game performance, helping the Yankees win five championships during his career.
.  .  .
Pettitte finished his career with a 256-153 record and 3.85 ERA. With the help of the expanded playoff format, he has won more games (19) than anyone in playoff history.  .  .  . Last year, Joe Torre’s No 6 was retired, while Tino Martinez and Paul O’Neil were honored in Monument Park. In 2015, Williams is scheduled to have his own ceremony, while Derek Jeter’s No. 2 will be retired in the near future.
