The Houston Astros lead the Yankees 3-1 in the best-of-seven series. After missing the ALDS with the shoulder issue, Sabathia was on the ALCS roster as a reliever. NY trailed 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, and even if the Yankees advanced, Sabathia would not be eligible to return to the active roster.

For all the scripting that he'd done to commemorate his final major-league season, for all the tributes, ceremonies, video messages and retirement gifts, the end of Sabathia's days as a pitcher was as unforgiving as it was organic. But it wasn't meant to be, as Sabathia left with the bases loaded and the Yankees down 7-3.

And although Sabathia threw a test pitch, the 2009 World Series champion was forced to head to the dugout - tears in his eyes.

Karwa Chauth is celebrated in some parts of India by married women, who keep a fast till they sight the moon in the evening. Shilpa posted a bunch of pictures on her Instagram and wrote, "Thankyou @rajkundra9 for fasting with me every year".

"That man gave his all", outfielder Aaron Judge told reporters. "They had to rip the ball out of his hand and that jersey off".

Sabathia announced in spring training that he would retire at the end of the 2019 season and has shown no signs of wavering from that decision. "That's a warrior right there". The move also means a shift in plans for Fox Sports 1, which is airing this year's best-of-7 ALCS series that the Astros now lead 2-1. "That's our leader. He left it all out there".

The 39-year-old likely finishes his career then with a 251-161 record for the Cleveland Indians, Milwaukee Brewers and Yankees. He re-signed with NY over the winter to be the No. 5 starter and struggled with knee and home run problems, pitching to a 4.95 ERA in 107 1/3 innings. However, the former Cy Young victor said he didn't undergo the procedure because of New York's status as a World Series contender.
