“The Crest is driving me crazy, but I love the way it raised me.” –Mac Dre
Country Club Crest — a.k.a. “The Crest” — is a neighborhood in hardscrabble Vallejo, California, North Bay, an hour from San Francisco. For those who came up there, it’s an attitude. A way of life, or the “hood,” as its most famous son and baseball Cy Young winner CC Sabathia affectionately calls it. It’s a place where Game Recognizes Game and the legends of its streets connect to the lifeblood of its community.
CC came up in The Crest, a place that rapper Mac Dre immortalized through song. “I be that cold Crest creeper, stompin’ and rompin’, putting the Crest on the map, like NWA did Compton.” Mac Dre was a legend, just like another Vallejo legend rapper E40 is. The legends are everywhere The eucalyptus tree far beyond the right-field fence at Vallejo High where CC once hit a ball. Legendary. The grapefruit tree in his grandmother’s backyard, in which he learned to pitch by throwing grapefruits at a folding chair. The mound he pitched on in the North Vallejo Little League, in which dreams began coming to life.
Who is CC? He’s the man greatest known as the master of the strike zone. The hyphy beat and Sawyer Street, and the sun that shines down on the scene. CC never left the Crest; he brought it with him on his journey. To the Big Leagues. To New York. Eventually to the Hall of Fame.
We celebrate the roots of CC Sabathia, one of baseball’s greatest pitchers.
