When CC Sabathia made a mound visit in the ninth inning of the All-Star Game, the Cleveland crowd gave him a raucous show of support. For the last 11 seasons, however, he’s called New York home. Not only that, but he’s been a fan favorite since arriving in the Bronx.
In 298 starts with the Yankees, the southpaw has pitched to a 3.75 ERA with a 3.87 FIP. He won a World Series, earned the 2009 ALCS MVP honors, posted a 21-win season, and recorded his 3,000th career strikeout with the Bombers. You can make a convincing argument that he ranks among the most successful free agent signings in team history.
As Sabathia prepares to hang up his spikes at the end of the year, we want to celebrate his accomplished run in New York with a new shirt from BreakingT.
