Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Pettitte Tree

A younger Josh gets greeted by the Captain
Josh Pettitte, the eldest son of Andy and Laura Pettitte, did something this past Friday that has famous father has never done in the Major Leagues - throw a no-hitter. Josh, who unlike his father, throws from the right side for Deer Park (TX) High School.

The offspring pitcher allowed just one base runner on a walk and struck out 10 as he defeated Boerne Champion High, one of the better teams in the state. Afterwards he received Twitter congrats from Yankees CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes, and Joba Chamberlain.

Josh has committed to play at Baylor University in the fall, but things could change depending on how things go in this June's amateur draft.
