Let’s chat again, what do you say? We’ll do another chat tomorrow at noon. We’ll see if there’s any optimism whatsoever at that point. Also, it’s worth passing along this information from CC Sabathia’s PitCCh In Foundation. Here’s the press release:
New York Yankee pitcher, CC Sabathia and his wife Amber have teamed with the Celebrities For Charity Foundation’s Net Raffle to announce details of a priceless Yankee experience that will award one lucky winner an up close and personal look at the Yankees and dinner with the Sabathia’s at an exclusive private event. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Sabathia’s PitCCh In Foundation that helps inner city youth.
“Amber and I love the concept of a raffle because everyone has a chance to win and enjoy a one of a kind experience at a Yankee game, spend time with Amber and myself for dinner at NYY Steak, and meet many of my teammates. Our hope is to raise as much money as we can to help inner city youth through our PitCCh In Foundation,” said CC Sabathia.
