All proceeds from the event will support youth and community programs of the PitCCh In Foundation and the New York Yankees Foundation.



PitCCh In Foundation was established in 2008 by Sabathia and his wife Amber, with the goal to help the communities that have given them so much. PitCCh In offers baseball clinics for boy and girls ages 5-12, a Youth Backpack Program, which provides backpacks and school supplies to kids in need throughout Vallejo, CA and the Bronx, and a Field Renovation Program to ensure kids have a safe place to play the game.

The New York Yankees Foundation partners with community-based organizations to host events at Yankee Stadium and supports various outreach efforts focused on providing positive education, recreational, healthy, and social outlets for NYC residents.
