Jay Z signs Yankee pitcher C.C. Sabathia to Roc Nation Sports.
Roc Nation Sports continues to build their fleet of athletes. The Jay Z-led sports agency has just inked a deal with New York Yankees star pitcher C.C. Sabathia.
C.C. Sabathia is a six-time all-star who has been with the Yankees since 2009, winning a World Series and ALCS MVP that same year. Sabathia joins the stellar lineup over at Roc Nation Sports that includes Kevin Durant, Victor Cruz, Geno Smith, Skylar Diggins, and former Yankee second baseman Robinson Cano.
Late last year, Jay Z and Roc Nation Sports helped Cano get a 10-year $240 million deal from the Mariners. So apparently Hov knows what he's doing. However, no details regarding this contract have been revealed yet.
A big fan of the Brooklyn rapper, Sabathia has supported Jay Z since arriving to the Yankees. He’s been spotted many times at concerts, Jay Z’s charity events, and courtside at Brooklyn Nets games. It was just a matter of time before it was official.
Congrats to C.C. and Roc Nation Sports.
