Mural at Stadium honors CC’s 200 victories
CC Sabathia, who started Sunday’s game for the Yankees, was busy after Saturday’s game as well. The lefthander appeared with his wife Amber; children Carsten, Jaden, Cyia and Carter and mother Margie Sabathia-Lanier to sign a baseball and place it on the #CC200 mural developed by Brand Jordan/Nike.
The mural is up at Yankee Stadium in tribute to Sabathia’s milestone of 200 career victories. All pinstripes on the mural are hand-written words about CC and his quotes over the years. Youngsters from programs such as the Boys and Girls Club that is supported by Sabathia and his PitCCh In Foundation have hand-written CC’s victory total, the date and signed their baseball before adding it to the mural.
Sabathia and his family with Yankees general manager Brian Cashman in attendance placed the last baseballs into the mural during a ceremony after Saturday’s game in the Great Hall near Gate 4 at the Stadium.
PitCCh In Foundation was co-founded by Amber and CC with a mission to enrich the lives of inner-city youth by raising self-esteem through education and athletic activities.
