On Thursday night, CC and Amber Sabathia hosted the first Pitcch In Foundation Celebrity Softball Game at Yankee Stadium. The foundation has produced a number of events, including a bowling outing in 2017 and a basketball game in 2016, but this was its first function on the field that CC actually calls home. CC gives all credit to Amber for making that happen. He says she talked to the Steinbrenner family to secure the stadium for an event.

Among those who participated in the actual game were former Yankees Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera and Johnny Damon, as well as celebrities Desus and Mero, Leslie Jones, Action Bronson, Victor Cruz, Tracy McGrady and Amar'e Stoudemire. Alex Rodriguez was also in attendance.

The Sabathias' Pitcch In Foundation works "to enrich the lives of inner city children through education and athletics." Proceeds from the event also benefitted the New York Yankees Foundation.

Earlier in the day, Sabathia participated in an event with the Boys and Girls Club of America to promote healthier eating and active lifestyles.
