Will CC have the most pinstripes in history? (Paul Lukas, December 22, 2008, ESPN)
We hear it all the time: Wearing the Yankees' pinstripes is a thrill, an honor and a privilege.Posted by Orrin Judd at December 24, 2008 8:01 AM
But some players are, shall we say, a bit more privileged than others. Joba Chamberlain, for example, has at least 26 pinstripes on the front of his jersey (and presumably a similar number on the back), while the diminutive Phil Rizzuto had only about 20.
So with the Yankees having signed a player who might charitably be described as being a bit on the robust side, the question has to be asked: Will CC Sabathia, with his prodigious proportions and preference for a loose, baggy fit, be wearing the most pinstripes of any player in Yankees history?
