CC Sabathia

Retired 19-year MLB pitcher, Special Assistant to the MLB commissioner, Board Vice President of The Players Alliance, and host of the R2C2 podcast

A 19-season MLB veteran, 6x All-Star, Cy Young Award Winner, World Series Champion, and New York Yankees legend, CC Sabathia retired as the MLB’s active leader in strikeouts, innings pitched, complete games, and WAR. Today, Sabathia ranks third in MLB history in strikeouts by a left-hander. On June 12, 2018, he became one of only five pitchers in Yankees history to record 1,500 strikeouts for the team.


Sabathia and his wife Amber formed the PitCCh In Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, in 2008. The foundation’s mission is to enrich the lives of inner-city youth by raising their self-esteem through educational and athletic activities in the New York Tri-State area and Northern California. The foundation showcases three signature programs that provide young people with the tools to be successful in school and off the field: All-Star Baseball Clinic, Youth Backpack Program, and Baseball Field Renovations.


CC and Amber, who are both natives of Vallejo, CA, reside in New Jersey where they are raising four children.
