Fans had an effect on Pettitte's return

Two weeks ago, I relayed Steve Lombardi's message to get Yankee fans to write Andy Pettitte letters urging him to return.

Apparently, it had an effect.

From Kat O'Brien:

Along with the teammates and Yankees officials, Hendricks said the barrage of fan pleas had an effect as well. One fan, Steve Lombardi, even came up with "P46" or "Project 46", representing Pettitte's number, and urged fans to write letters and e-mails to Pettitte.

"The fans helped," Hendricks wrote. "Some wrote very touching and eloquent letters." (Newsday)
Good job, Steve, and thanks go out to the fans. Pettitte returning is absolutely huge.
