Under the Grapefruit Tree: The CC Sabathia Story follows the deeply personal story of former New York Yankees pitcher Carsten Charles (“CC”) 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.
As the highs and lows of his last season are chronicled, Sabathia looks back on his legacy as one of the game’s pre-eminent pitchers, as well as the profound challenges that shaped him, including his longtime battle with addiction that came to a head in 2015 while playing for the Yankees.
The documentary was produced by HBO in association with Major League Baseball.
