ICYMI: Andy Pettitte's son threw a no-hitter

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

Young Josh Pettitte, son of veteran lefty Andy Pettitte, right-handed ace of Deer Park (Tx.) High School and Baylor commit, tossed a no-hitter on Friday. The Hall of Very Good busts out some scoreboard evidence of Josh's handiwork ...

In addition to allowing no safeties on the day, Pettitte whiffed 10 against only one walk, and, as Prep Rally points out, he did all that against some fairly imposing competition.

As HoVG notes, the younger Pettitte's exploits earned congratulatory tweets from the likes of CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain.

Take that, pops.
