By Cindy Boren

Andy Pettitte has decided to retire and will announce his decision Friday, according to ESPN Radio's Michael Kay.

Pettitte, 38, has compiled a 240-138 record with a lifetime 3.88 earned-run average in 16 seasons with the New York Yankees and Houston Astros. A year ago, he played well, earning an All-Star berth, until suffering a groin injury. He managed only 21 starts and went 11-3 with a 3.28 ERA.

Good career, tough pitcher. He also has a summer court date dealing with Mr. Clemens to schedule.
