NEW YORK, N.Y. — Chad Bettis, a longtime Colorado Rockies pitcher who signed with the New York Yankees last offseason, said he will retire from baseball.
“Today I am walking away from the game with my head held high, knowing that I pushed my body as far as it could go physically,” Bettis told Nick Groke of The Athletic.
Bettis was a former Texas Tech pitcher who signed a contract with the Yankees in February 2020.
Bettis was born in Lubbock and went to Monterey High School. He pitched for Texas Tech in 2008 and 2009.
