Another Sabathia is headed to The Show.
No, it’s not CC’s son, but rather his wife, Amber.
CAA Sports announced on Monday that Amber Sabathia would be joining their team as a baseball agent.
“Having a front row seat alongside CC’s career throughout the past two decades provided me with critical insight and experience in business, marketing and philanthropy,” Amber Sabathia said in a statement. “I recognize my unique ability to support, advise and lead all facets of the process with players and their families.”
Sabathia congratulated Amber with a post on Twitter, adding that he’ll be in “full-time dad mode on the golf course.”
Jeff Berry, co-head of baseball at CAA, spoke highly of what Amber is able to bring to the table.
“With more than 20 years of experience in the business of baseball working alongside her husband CC, Amber has demonstrated tremendous strategic vision and meticulous execution as an entrepreneur and philanthropist,” he said in a statement. “Now, in her new role as agent, Amber brings a unique perspective as business woman of color, baseball wife, and mother, all of which will prove invaluable to our team and the clients we serve.”
Others on social media congratulated Amber, including fellow agent Rachel Luba and CC’s podcast co-host Ryan Ruocco.
During CC’s career, Amber served as the executive of PitCCh In Foundation, which worked with inner city youth.
Per Sports Business Journal, Amber had interviewed at four different agencies before ultimately being hired by CAA.
