Good way to kick off the weekend, with Yankees ace CC Sabathia surprising a young baseball player on Anderson Cooper’s talk show. Dugan Smith is a 13-year-old who fought cancer through a rare surgery, and he wanted the surgery specifically to keep playing baseball.
I can’t quite figure out how to make the video appear here on the blog — seriously, most of the Internet confuses me — but you can check out some of the interview right here, and you can see Sabathia’s surprise appearance right here.
Dugan said he’s an Indians fan, and when he plays video games, he makes a trade so that Sabathia is back playing for Cleveland. Sabathia, though, showed up in his usual Yankees jersey.
Good work by the big man. He really is just as friendly as he seems, and he’s incredibly good in situations like this. Good stuff from CC.
