While CC Sabathia is up for SI’s Sportsman of the Year award, his manager took home some honors of his own. The March of Dimes named Joe Girardi their Sportsman of the Year (Venus Williams was Sportwoman) because of his achievements with the Yankees in 2009, and will honor him 26th annual March of Dimes luncheon on December 2nd. The luncheon is at the Waldorf Astoria (walking distance from Grand Central), and if you want to attend, give the MoD a call at 212-353-1143, or email jcarlo (at) marchofdimes (dot) com.
The MoD is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health, and works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Congrats to Girardi.
