Every time CC Sabathia steps on the mound, he brings the heart of a champion to go along with his flame throwing left arm. Standing at 6'7" with his trademark hat cocked slightly to the side, CC's imposing presence on the mound belies a gentle giant, a man of family, faith and philanthropy, off the field.
The second official Roc Nation Summer Classic Basketball Tournament will be at Barclays Center on Thursday, July 21 at 7:00 p.m. ET.
