Carsten Charles Sabathia Jr. became the 17th pitcher in MLB history to record 3,000 strikeouts throughout their career. What’s even more jaw-dropping is the fact that CC Sabathia became just the third left-handed pitcher to complete the aforementioned feat.
Sabathia is no stranger to facing the best batters since he started striking players night in and night out in his early days with the Cleveland Indians. While his milestone surely cemented his spot in the Cooperstown Hall of Fame, he’s already been revered as a legend within the sneaker community.
Sabathia is one of the very few individuals who have rocked the Jumpman on the mound. Whether it was during his days as a Milwaukee Brewer or his recent outings with the New York Yankees, Sabathia has been rocking heat.
Jordan Brand celebrates Sabathia’s recent milestone with his own Air Jordan 11 Cleat PE. Sabathia’s jersey number can be found placed on heel tab while “CC52” is printed on the inside of the tongue. Although the love that Sabathia has for the AJ 11 is evident, it’s no surprise that a legendary player is immortalized in this moment with a legendary shoe.
Take a look at Sabathia’s exclusive cleat below. Hats off to the man in the pinstripes — the LegaCC continues.
