CC Sabathia was back at his old high school on Friday, this time as the guest of honor.
Vallejo High School declared CC Sabathia Day, and celebrated by naming the school’s baseball field in honor of the Yankees ace. Sabathia has remained heavily involved in his home community, and tonight he’s hosting a baseball clinic at CC Sabathia Field.
“I have known CC for years,” Vallejo school board member Hazel Wilson said. “and I have to say he and his mother Margie are the same people they were at the North Vallejo Little League, at Vallejo High School… Although they received a great blessing, they have not forgotten their community.”
Derek Jeter and Nick Swisher have also had baseball fields named in their honor this offseason.
