The past six years of Yankees history have been marked by retiring legends. That continues this October when C.C. Sabathia joins Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, and Alex Rodriguez as the next man to forever hang up that pinstripe jersey.
After making his Major League debut in Cleveland in 2001, Sabathia, his once-unstoppable fastball, and large frame have become synonymous with New York. And the lefty just pitched his final regular season start at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night, leaving with a tip of his cap to the crowd giving him a nice ovation.
Recording his 3,000th strikeout this season and being a major force behind the Yanks' last World Series-winning season are undoubtedly career highlights, but there's almost too many moments to list from his Hall of Fame-worthy resume.
