Pitcch In Foundation Celebrity Softball Game
The Pitcch in Foundation, founded by CC Sabathia and his wife Amber Sabathia, held a celebrity softball game at Yankee Stadium featuring professional New York athletes across all sports and I was there to cover it all!
The Pitcch in Foundation works to enrich the lives of inner city youth in the New York Tri-state area and Northern California by raising their self esteem though educational and athletic activities.
Celebrities like Victor Cruz, Mariano Rivera, Action Bronson, Sharlee Jeter, Tiki Barber and others showed up in force to participate in the game. Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez also dropped in to say hello!
I got the chance to interview some of the players on the pregame red carpet like current Bronx Bomber Didi Gregorius, Yankees legend Jorge Posada and his wife Laura Posada, and retired Yankee stars Johnny Damon and Carlos Beltran. I also interviewed players from others sports like Willie Colon from the New York Jets, Chris Canty from the New York Giants, and Charles Oakley and Amar’e Stoudemire from the New York Knicks.
I spoke to man of the hour CC Sabathia himself who talked about how the event was a dream come true for him. CC Sabthia talked about how he “always told [my wife] Amber that I’ve wanted to do a rockin’ softball game, but I never thought it would turn out like this.”
As a major fan and supporter of the Yankees, this event was a very exciting event for me to be apart of. I feel honored to have participated in an event that fights for such a great cause. I even “pitched in” to help ABC 7 get their interview with CC!
