Much has been written on Andy Pettitte, things such as memories of the first time people heard the name associated with possibly being a major leaguer. Jack O'Connell, the baseball writer has a nice recollection, one that's much better than mine since I was 16 at the time.

Even if your memory isn't the greatest, one thing you can do is look up a career and see various milestones, such as major league debut, first win and so on. So below will be a list of Andy Pettitte's firsts.

First major league appearance: April 29, 1995, seventh inning in Kansas City in relief of Melido Perez

First batter faced: Wally Joyner flied out to center

First strikeout: Joe Vitiello pinch hitting for Bob Hamelin (also Vitiello's major league debut)

First hit allowed: Gary Gaetti single

First earned run
