Joining center fielder Andruw Jones fellow Yankee Derek Jeter, C.C. Sabathia became the third brand ambassador for Jordan Brand‘s baseball segment. At 6-foot 7-inch and 290 lbs, it isn’t easy to avoid Sabathia, especially when he’s at the centerpiece of Yankee Stadium’s pitcher mound. For this hulking mass of power and precision, Jordan Brand recreated the iconic Air Jordan Alpha AJ1 to become a suitable Player’s Edition for Sabathia. A part of the For The Love Of The Game Collection, the newly billed Air Jordan Alpha AJ1 Outdoor included most of the characteristics of AJ1. Beneath it all, however, the Air Jordan Alpha AJ1 Outdoor is a beast on the playground, able to withstand the foot lags, change of direction, and toe drags. In the distinctive Carolina Blue Sky scheme and branded with “basketball-heart” emblem, the Air Jordan Alpha AJ1 Outdoor – For The Love Of The Game Edition (or C.C. Sabathia PE) is now available at Nike retail locations and NikeStore.com. Limited quantity means 3 pairs only for each customer.
