PitCCh In Foundation was established in 2008 by Sabathia and his wife Amber, with the goal to help the communities that have given them so much. PitCCh In offers baseball clinics for boy and girls ages 5-12, a Youth Backpack Program, which provides backpacks and school supplies to kids in need throughout Vallejo, CA and the Bronx, and a Field Renovation Program to ensure kids have a safe place to play the game.
