Little C, who hasn’t been little for several years now, has been an elite baseball player on the national circuit in recent years, and dropped a trending commitment video on Tuesday night to finally answer the question we’ve all been waiting for: where’s he heading in the fall?
Would he follow his buddy Druw Jones (Andruw’s son) to Vanderbilt?
Or would he find a home in the ACC — a fact that was made obvious fairly quickly as soon as we hit play on the commitment reel?
Turns out, the younger Carsten Sabathia opted to make his grandma happy by committing to Georgia Tech — there’s always a family element to the Sabathias’ decisions, isn’t there? They’re just the best.
At the end of the video, Carsten III showed off his new fit in the Yellow Jacket threads, and … yeah, he looks like he’s going to be a beast.

Carsten III is a 6-4, 240-pound first baseman who’s now poised to live out the offensive dreams that only flickered from time to time for his dad in the big leagues.
Remember how much CC loved to take BP in National League cities and try to relive his one summer of Milwaukee Brewers glory? Yeah, that’s about to be Carsten’s attitude every day.
Carsten will be following in the footsteps not only of his father, but of another ’09 Yankee who made quite an impact in this town: Mark Teixeira, who was a Georgia Tech first baseman and star before being selected fifth overall by the Rangers in 2001.
From sharing the clubhouse as a six-year-old to picking up a glove and toeing the same bag in Atlanta … wild ride, indeed.
Though one peek at Little C’s highlights and you can tell he’s earned the opportunity.
Expect to see CC and the family in Georgia, at the ACC Tournament, and in Omaha this year, considering how present the left-hander was at his son’s high school games.
Or … perhaps the Yankees can simply make Carsten an offer he can’t refuse in the draft, swaying him away at the last minute? You know, kind of like they did with Teixeira and the Red Sox.
