Post-retirement, CC talks all-things-baseball, and occasionally other sports, on his podcast, R2C2 with co-host, Ryan Ruocco. He’s also made a few appearances on MLB Network, breaking down live games.
“I’ve dedicated my whole life to the game of baseball. Nobody has been more supportive and influential than Amber. So proud of this next chapter for you. If you need me, I’ll be in full-time dad mode on the golf course with some Jordans on, she’s built for this!” said CC on his Twitter page.
There’s also another member of the Sabathia family who needs a shoutout from the Bro’s.
Yesterday Amber posted a video of Carsten, one of their four children, who went 2-4 in a win for Bergen Catholic High School, while making plays with the glove along with his bat. Looks like mom has a future client in the wings.
We at MLB Bro congratulate Amber Sabathia on her new role and wish her nothing but the best! It is important to get more black women involved in baseball and she will be a big part in representing them.
