CC Sabathia relishes final baseball trip through Bay Area

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) CC Sabathia spent a day off handing out his 50,000th backpack to first-graders and second-graders at home in Vallejo as kids returned to school.

The veteran major leaguer has been doing thoughtful things in Vallejo for years, and this marked the 11th year he has donated backpacks. On Monday, however, he got to give them out on the first day at every elementary school for the first time. The larger-than-life lefty certainly could relate to all the crying kindergarteners as they parted from their parents at drop-off. That used to be him in tears as a boy, and he still remembers it well, noting, "I was super spoiled as a kid."

Sabathia's farewell in the Bay Area means so much as he returns to his roots for the final time during the regular season before the 39-year-old pitcher heads into retirement.
