As a part of our commitment and responsibilities as an ally, we intend to highlight and amplify black voices within our community. Each week we will be introducing you to a new guest who will be diving into important topics about the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

On this week’s episode, we connect with retired Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia to discuss the importance of sports and educational opportunities in low-income communities.

  • How are you handling retirement? What’s been keeping you occupied?
  • You are known as the PE goat in baseball. Speak on your relationship with Jordan Brand and in particular the AJ 12.
  • On Opening Day, you’ve seen baseball teams follow what the NBA and NFL have done with showing solidarity and kneeling. How do you feel about the MLB allowing players to express themselves, especially in today’s climate?
  •  How did PITCCHIN come into fruition and tell us about the work you’ve done to serve the inner city communities?
  • Importance of baseball in the inner city
  • Finish Line announces $20,000 donation to PITCCHIN
