Sabathia honored at BBWAA dinner

I was out of town this weekend, so I missed this year’s BBWAA dinner in Manhattan. It’s always a fantastic event, and based on the stories I’ve heard, this was one of the more memorable dinners in recent memory.

Among the honorees was Yankees ace CC Sabathia, who was given the New York chapter’s Joan Payson Award for humanitarian efforts. CC and his wife, Amber, have done a lot of good on both coasts with their PitCCh In Foundation, and Sabathia is one of those athletes who seems to genuinely care and want to be involved with each event.

That said, there was no sense denying it…

“I was telling my wife,” Sabathia said while accepting his award on Saturday. “It would have been a lot cooler if I was here to get one of the Cy Youngs or MVPs, but I guess that’s up to me.”

Check out the video above, if only to see the slimmed down ace three weeks before he reports to camp.
