Former Yankees (and Astros) pitcher Andy Pettitte threw out the first pitch before ALCS Game 5

Before the Yankees' 5-0 win over the Astros during Game 5 of the American League Championship Series presented by Camping World took place, Yankee Stadium saw a familiar face. Number 46, Andy Pettitte, was there to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

The three-time All-Star spent 15 seasons with the Yanks, and sandwiched between those were three seasons with the Astros. What a perfect way to reunite with your former teams.

Pettitte, of course, threw from the top of the mound and appeared to still have it:


For those of you wondering who the left-handed pitcher is pulling for in the series,'s Bryan Hoch reported that even though Pettitte sported both uniforms, he's rooting for the pinstripes in this one.

Tune in to ALCS Game 6 on Friday, 8 p.m. ET on FS1.
