Lukaku, Pulisic Jersey Swap with Yankee Legend CC Sabathia


CC Sabathia

In the words of Poison singer Bret Michaels “hit it CC.” The Premier League is currently on winter break and you know what that means- coverage of professional athletes doing jersey swaps with one another.

Chelsea forwards Romelu Lukaku and Christian Pulisic welcomed New York Yankees legend CC Sabathia to their home ground of Stamford Bridge and showed the six time Major League Baseball All-Star around. They did a shirt swap too of course!

Yes., it’s another edition of game recognizes game.

Sabathia, who won the 2007 Cy Young Award, hails from Vallejo, California, so he was no doubt pumped to meet up with Captain America/potentially the greatest American soccer player ever. Pulisic leads the USA into a major World Cup Qualifier against El Salvador tonight. 

Chelsea are off until they take on Plymouth Argyle in the 4th round of the FA Cup on Feb. 4.

Sabathia won over 250 games and struck out over 3,000 opposing hitters during his elite career, which saw him enjoy his status as one of the most dominant pitchers of his era.

He also played for the Milwaukee Brewers and Cleveland Indians. For something more in depth than this post, and Chelsea related, check out this post on Pulisic.
