Pettitte admitted that “there’s no doubt” he’s thought about pitching again, but then added:
I don’t know if that will ever go away. When I’m away … not thinking about playing or thinking about the games, I’m just so content. It’s just been awesome. Retirement’s been everything I thought it would be. The desire is not there. The same desire that made me go home is the same desire to play. Again, like I’ve said, unless God works a miracle and gives me that desire to do that, I don’t see any chance.
Instead he settled for throwing a pitch to longtime batterymate and current Yankees designated hitter Jorge Posada, who’s actually a year older than Pettitte.
