In time for Thanksgiving: CC Sabathia’s a good guy

CC Sabathia

I was going to include this in the previous post, but it’s not really news, and it’s a wonderful way to head into the Thanksgiving holiday. So let’s give it it’s own post.

Wayne Coffey gives us a nice look into the charitable work done by CC Sabathia and his wife Amber. There’s a great anecdote about CC offering to send some of his own shoes to a kid in California who was having a hard time finding shoes that fit. A lot of athletes make donations and do really nice work in the community, but it always strikes me just how present the Sabathia’s are for their charitable work. CC’s a very genuine guy, and he’s very much a part of the work he does. Nice story about Wayne, and very fitting for the upcoming holiday.

If you’re looking for more of a baseball story and not a feel-good Thanksgiving story: Here’s Sabathia on the Yankees attempts to re-sign Robinson Cano.

“As his friend, I know how difficult it is going through this process,” Sabathia said. “Everybody thinks it’s a fun time, but I know how stressful it can be. I won’t hound him about it. I know he has his representation, and they are doing what they can do with (Brian Cashman). We’ll see what happens, but I definitely want him to stay and I feel like he’s going to stay.”
