About the Program

In 2011, the PitCCh In Foundation established the Nathan Berhel Scholarship at Vallejo High School to honor the memory of Nathan Berhel, New York Yankees pitcher and CC Sabathia’s cousin and childhood friend, who passed away in June 2004. The PitCCh In Foundation hopes to continue Nathan’s legacy of excellence by supporting the next generation of student athletes from Vallejo on their journey to college.

“Nathan was an important part of my life. He was a very focused, determined and courageous man on and off the field. A two-sport athlete in football and baseball, Nathan played with the biggest heart and toughest attitude as a team leader who supported and encouraged all members of his team to give 110%.” - CC Sabathia
