Picture of the Day: CC Sabathia doing his part following Hurricane Sandy

Nov 10, 2012, 4:01 PM EDT

Courtesy of the Yankees’ team Twitter account, here’s a picture of CC Sabathia helping repaint and revamp the Hoboken Girls and Boys Club, which was flooded as a result of Hurricane Sandy. By the way, it looks like his surgically-repaired left elbow is doing just fine.

Steven Miller of MLB.com notes that Sabathia’s PitCCh In Foundation was originally scheduled to have a fundraiser at Lucky Strike yesterday and a scavenger hunt through Central Park today, but they redirected their efforts to help out after the hurricane. Sabathia’s wife, Amber, is the foundation’s co-founder and executive director.

In addition to Sabathia’s volunteer effort at the Boys and Girls Club, the Yankees’ ace also did his part to help area families get back on their feet. He purchased a long list of items which were distributed to those in need this morning at the HOPES Community Action Partnership in Hoboken. Well done, Sabathias.

    Very well done! Extremely classy. Then I see the New Jersey devils hat he’s wearing… makes me miss hockey. Feels bad, man.

    I love hearing stories about players helping out their communities. Nicely done, Mr. and Mrs. CC.

    Other athletes should learn from CC and people like him that do stuff for there community. This proves that athletes aren’t ALL about the money and that they do have a heart. The people of NY and Jersey need all the help they can get at this point from athletes and even from us regular people. Even if it’s minor stuff!!!!

    Good to have a guy so tall he can paint the ceiling without a ladder too.

    You can tell from the dressing down sweats he didnt go just to show a famous face, he went to get his hands dirty///genuine help.

    I just hope that if by chance he hurts himself during these activities we don’t see snarky posts about multi-million dollar athletes paying other people to do stuff like this for them.
