CC Sabathia exits potential final appearance with apparent injury
New York Yankees veteran pitcher CC Sabathia exited the top of the eighth inning of Game 4 of the ALCS in the middle of a two-out at-bat with an apparent injury. It was likely the final appearance of a Hall of Fame career.
Sabathia, 39, entered the game with the Yankees down 7-3 in relief of Adam Ottavino with two runners on base. A run came home on a fielding error before Sabathia retired Carlos Correa and hit Robinson Chirinos. S
Trainers came out to assess Sabathia, though it was unclear to viewers where he was feeling discomfort. He got back on the mound to try one more pitch, but could not continue. Sabathia walked off the field for perhaps the last time of his 19-year career to a standing ovation.

Alex Rodriguez and Trevor Bauer were among the first to tweet tributes to him.
If that's the last pitch we see you throw in a big league game @CC_Sabathia thank you for all the years and memories. From the dominance with the @Indians to the run with @Brewers to the leadership with the @Yankees...cheers to you. One of the best to ever do it.- Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) October 18, 2019
Sabathia made 22 starts this season for the Yankees, going 5-8 with a 4.95 ERA. He announced in February that this season would be his last.
"All I ever wanted for people to remember me was as a good teammate," Sabathia said during the announcement. "I look forward to 2019 being a championship season for us, and I'm going to give everything I have and leave it out on the field."
And that, he certainly did.More from Yahoo Sports:
