Sabathia says he’ll let his sons play football


It’s become fashionable to ask football players whether they’ll let their sons play the sport.  On Tuesday, I posed that question to a baseball player.

Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia joined me on The Dan Patrick Show, and at the end of the interview the topic came up.

And he said the issue already has come up with his son, and that C.C. is letting his son play.

The six-foot, seven-inch, 290-pounder (C.C., not his son . . . yet) actually signed a letter of intent to play college football at Hawaii before being drafted by the Cleveland Indians in 1998.
