Tweet [1]


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, [3]and celebrated by naming the school’s baseball field in honor of the Yankees ace. [4]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.
