“The PitCCh In Foundation was established in 2008 with its first event in Cleveland and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 2010 by New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia and his wife Amber to help the communities that have given them so much. With the support of CC’s mother, Margie Sabathia-Lanier, and a dedicated team of professional staff and volunteers, the foundation showcases three signature programs that provide young people with the tools to be successful in school and on the field: All-Star Baseball Clinic, Youth Backpack Program, and Field Renovations. CC and Amber were motivated by not only the idea of giving back but by developing a long-term platform with the foundation to provide young people with the belief in their abilities and to make their dreams become a reality.”
