TEAM PITCCH IN FOUNDATION
The PitCCh In Foundation (PIF) was established in 2008 with its first event in Cleveland and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 2010 by CC and Amber Sabathia to support the communities that have given them so much. With the support of CC’s mother, Margie Sabathia-Lanier, and a dedicated team of professional staff and volunteers, the foundation developed three Signature Programs and supported ongoing special initiatives to fulfill PIF’s mission to enrich the lives of youth from the inner city. The goal of these programs is to help teens raise their self-esteem through educational and athletic activities. From the beginning, CC and Amber were motivated by not only the idea of giving back, but by developing a long term platform with PIF to provide young people with the belief in their abilities to make their dreams become a reality. They understand all too well the challenges of being in an environment that can break one’s spirit and motivation, as CC and Amber both grew up in the inner city.
“I’ve dealt with everything, from people in my family suddenly passing away to drug addicts living in my house. There were many different things I had to deal with growing up. Nevertheless, I always knew what my goals were– to stay focused and have a better life for myself,” said CC.
“CC and I are both from the inner city,” Amber said. “Growing up, we felt there was that one special person who made a positive influence in our lives. We hope that we can be that one positive person in other people’s lives. We were given a gift and an opportunity to give back and to try to touch someone’s life and to make a difference. That’s why we started the PitCCh In Foundation.”
Each undertaking of the foundation is done with careful consideration and “hands-on” involvement. Amber Sabathia, the Foundation Executive Director, works to ensure that the end result of each project are fulfilling the promise of the mission to enrich lives of youth from the inner city. It is a place to which both she and her husband can relate, coming from struggling upbringings themselves. Too many urban youth give up and feel deflated. CC and Amber plan to grow the foundation in order to serve as role models and help a new generation of young people be their best. Having grown up in challenging situations, only to become a Cy Young Award-winning pitcher and World Series champion, CC knows anyone can make the best out of their situations if they truly stay focused. Amber remains committed to her education and professional development. She has earned her bachelor’s degree in Education.
