Baseball's most acclaimed relief pitcher made an emotional exit in his final appearance in the Yankees' home pinstripes, when captain Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte came to the mound to remove him with two outs in the ninth inning of a 4-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night.
Andy Pettitte had no interest in a farewell tour or some big pronouncement regarding his (second) retirement. Anything more than a conference call the day after the season would only feel embarrassing.
The 41-year-old left-hander initially retired after the 2010 season, but he sat out only one year before returning to the Yankees.
Shortstop Derek Jeter went back on the disabled list. Leadoff hitter Brett Gardner was ejected for throwing his helmet. And outfielder Zoilo Almonte sprained his ankle during the game.
Kirk Smalley stood directly in front of Andy Pettitte and held a photo of his son Ty inches from the Yankees star's face, pleading that such a tragedy should never again take place.

New York Yankees starting pitcher Andy Pettitte acknowledges the fans and players after earning a win over the Houston Astros in his final Major League baseball game in a baseball game Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, in Houston.
"The focus, it was a grind, but I knew if I could get through the first inning. Once I got past that it was pretty good," said Pettitte, who took a no-hitter in the sixth before being charged with two runs.
