NEW YORK -- Andy Pettitte retained a new lawyer for his upcoming appearance before a congressional committee and will be represented by Pittsburgh attorney Jay Reisinger.

Pettitte, Roger Clemens and Chuck Knoblauch, the three players invited to testify Jan. 16 before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, all share the same agents, Randy and Alan Hendricks. Clemens is being represented on drug matters by Houston lawyer Rusty Hardin.

Reisinger represented Sammy Sosa when he testified before the same committee three years ago.

Brian McNamee, the former trainer for Clemens and Pettitte, also has been asked to testify along with former Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski. McNamee told baseball investigator George Mitchell that he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone -- some of it obtained from Radomski.

Pettitte has acknowledged twice receiving HGH shots from McNamee.
