Yankees: UNINTERRUPTED ep. 2; Fashion, style and culture
The brainchild of LeBron James and Maverick Carter, “Big C is UNITERRUPTED” released its second episode, following Yankees starter CC Sabathia as he talks fashion, style and culture.
Directed by Yankees starting pitcher, CC Sabathia, and his wife Amber, UNITERRUPTED gives fans a no holds barred look into the private life of a 37-year-old professional athlete as his professional ball playing days wind down.
In episode 2, entitled; ‘Fashion, style & culture,’ Sabathia takes us to Harlem’s famous clothier, Dapper Dan, who provides him with exclusive, tailor-made fits.
Along the way, CC talks about the evolution of his fashion from when he first entered the league in 2001. Sabathia jokes that he’s come a long way from the days when 7XL white tees, throwback jerseys and big chains were the norms.

Once a fastball-reliant shooter that would regularly strikeout 200-plus hitters per season, Sabathia’s change in philosophy and approach has extended itself from the mound all the way to his wardrobe.
Whether it’s skinny jeans, designer shoes or exquisite Gucci leather jackets, Sabathia has kept with the times, becoming a bit of a fashionista, still capable of being the lynchpin to the Yankees’ staff.
Towards the end of the micro-documentary, Sabathia mentions that he doesn’t understand the dress code associated with sports.
"Watching ESPN, to talk about highlights, why do they have to be in a suit? Why do they have to be in a suit to do a baseball game? I feel like I could be a good commentator — if I could wear a Jordan t-shirt, you could get my insight."
For the Yankees’ sake, let’s hope Sabathia doesn’t plan on joining former Bomber, Alex Rodriguez, in the booth anytime soon. That’s because as of April 19, the Yankees’ pitching staff ranks towards to bottom of baseball in most statistics.
- 18th in opponent batting average — .243
- 24th in ERA — 4.68
- 25th in saves — 2
- 28th in quality starts — 5
- Tied for last with zero complete games or shutouts
Sabathia has been on the shelf since April 6 with a right hip strain. Though it was considered minor at the time, the Yanks were cautious with their veteran lefty, keeping him out longer than the initially expected 10 days.
