About CC Sabathia
CC Sabathia is a pitcher for the New York Yankees. Sabathia played the first seven-and-a-half seasons of his career with the Cleveland Indians, where he won the 2007 Cy Young Award. He played the second half of the 2008 MLB season with the Milwaukee Brewers, leading them to the Wild Card, their first playoff appearance in 26 years. In the following offseason, Sabathia left via free agency and signed with the New York Yankees, where he helped lead them to the 2009 World Series title.

About The PitCCh In Foundation
The PitCCh In Foundation was established in 2008 with its first event in Cleveland and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 2010 by New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia and his wife Amber to help the communities that have given them so much. With the support of CC’s mother, Margie Sabathia-Lanier, and a dedicated team of professional staff and volunteers, the foundation showcases three signature programs that provide young people with the tools to be successful in school and on the field: All Star Baseball Clinic, Youth Backpack Program and Field Renovations. CC and Amber were motivated by not only the idea of giving back, but by developing a long term platform with the foundation to provide young people with the belief in their abilities and to make their dreams become a reality.
