Boos came from the crowd as Andy Pettitte, starting pitcher for the New York Yankees, warmed up for Game 3 of the 2009 World Series. They hadn't forgotten.
Two years earlier, Pettitte admitted to using human growth hormones to speed up recovery of an injured elbow.
Pettitte said in a statement to the Associated Press: “Though it wasn’t against baseball rules, I was not comfortable with what I was doing, so I stopped.”
He said one of his favorite Bible verses was 1 Peter 4:11: "If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides. . . ."
Pettitte was ultimately honored by his teammates when, several years after winning the 2009 World Series, the Yankees retired his #46 jersey!
