Sabathia named Yankees nominee for Roberto Clemente Award

By

The Yankees announced this afternoon that CC Sabathia is the team’s nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award, which is given annually to the player who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” Derek Jeter won the award back in 2009, and you can participate in the voting right here.

Yesterday we learned that David Robertson was a finalist for the Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award, so it’s good to see the various Yankees get recognized for their work in the community.

    And CC deserves it. I’m just waiting for that guy who bashed Robertson for only donating to a cause that affected his home town. I’m sure he’ll same about the CC, well he only cares about African Americans in New York blah blah blah. CC and Robertson both deserve to win.
