Rocking his cap slightly to the side and wearing his pant legs down over his cleats, C.C. Sabathia has always been a little different when it comes to how he wears his uniform. Baseball is a sport that holds tradition dear; but Sabathia, a Jordan Brand athlete, decided to shake things up by turning traditional Air Jordan shoes into his very own cleats. Over the past few seasons, the big lefthander has worn cleat versions of the Jordan IV, IX, XI (pictured above), XII, and Melo M8s. When you've won a Cy Young, you wear what you want.
