CC Sabathia discusses alcohol dependence awareness campaign, Yankees’ 2021 season

Yesterday, it was announced that CC Sabathia would be the spokesperson for the My Relationship with Alcohol campaign, which will aim to raise awareness about alcohol dependence. Sabathia himself suffered from the disease, and checked himself into rehab in late 2015.

CC Sabathia Eviscerates Tony La Russa in Profanity-Laced Rant: ‘He Shouldn’t Be F***ing Managing That Team’

The Chicago White Sox are atop the MLB standings with a 26-16 record, but that’s not why they’ve been making headlines over the past week. Manager Tony La Russa came under fire recently after condemning his own player for hitting a home run on a 3-0 count late in a blowout. It now seems as if La Russa is losing his own locker room, and former MLB pitcher CC Sabathia believes he should lose it for good.
