NEW YORK -- It wasn’t Mariano Rivera Day -- not by a long shot -- but the Yankees honored Andy Pettitte in a short ceremony prior to Wednesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Pettitte received a framed base from his last Yankee Stadium start signed by the entire team.

Fellow Core Four members Derek Jeter and Rivera presented the base to Pettitte, as the team stood outside the dugout.

It was very low-key, perhaps exactly what Pettitte wanted.
