Under the Grapefruit Tree: The CC Sabathia Story,ย a documentary from HBO Sports produced in association with Major League Baseball, follows the deeply personal story of former New York Yankees pitcher Carsten Charles (โ€œCCโ€) Sabathia, Jr. The film features behind-the-scenes footage from his final season with the Yankees in 2019.

In his own words, Sabathia narrates his story.

Why watch Under the Grapefruit Tree: The CC Sabathia Story?

I had a decent mental sketch of Sabathiaโ€™s life before watching โ€œUnder the Grapefruit Tree,โ€ but now, I feel like I have a more complete picture. If you get a chance to watch it, I highly recommend it. If itโ€™s a bonus perk, I can promise that you get to see teenage CC crushinโ€™ dingers in high school. Who wouldnโ€™t love that?
