CC Sabathia celebrated Jackie Robinson's 100th birthday by going to Jackie Robinson School
On Jan. 31, 1919, Jackie Robinson was born. Exactly 100 years later, CC Sabathia went to P.S. 375 -- better known as Jackie Robinson School -- in Brooklyn, N.Y., to celebrate the legendary, color-line-breaking hero.
He shared an image from outside the school when he arrived. It has an awesome mural:
He then led the school assembly in shouting, "Happy birthday, Jackie Robinson!"
