Yankees Ace CC Sabathia Gives Back to Inner-City Youth Through RBI Program


Major League Baseball's Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities, or RBI, program has groomed some of today's major leaguers. Yankees ace CC Sabathia is one of them.

Now, the big left-hander is giving back to ensure that the kids may some day have the same opportunity that he's had.

The 22-year-old program encourages kids to play ball, keep their grades up and stay off drugs. So far, more than 185 RBI participants have been drafted by major league teams.

To hear more about the program, from a CNN report, check out the video above.
