PitCCh In Foundation

PitCCh In Foundation Celebrity Softball Game

New York athletes across all sports recently came together for a celebrity softball game at Yankees Stadium to support Bergen County power couple Amber and CC Sabathia‘s Pitcch In Foundation. 

This foundation enriches the lives of inner city youth by raising their self-esteem through educational and athletic activities. It is located in the New York Tri-state area and also Northern California.

The jam-packed rosters featured over 70 A-list names, including: Victor Cruz, Mariano Rivera, Action Bronson, Sharlee Jeter, Tiki Barber among others. Hollywood power couple Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez also popped in to say hello from the Yankees’ dugout!

Furthermore CC, a 2009 New York Yankees World Series Champion, discussed how the event was a dream come true. In fact, he said, “I always told [my wife] Amber that I’ve wanted to do a rockin’ softball game, but I never thought it would turn out like this.”

 #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino spoke to some of the game’s participants on the pregame red carpet. This included: current Bronx Bomber Didi Gregorius; Yankees legend Jorge Posada and his wife, Laura; retired stars Johnny Damon and Carlos Beltran (New York Yankees). In addition, she spoke to Willie Colon (New York Jets); Chris Canty (New York Giants); Charles Oakley and Amar’e Stoudemire (New York Knicks).  Finally, she spoke with the man of the hour himself, CC Sabathia. Mitchell Modell of Modell’s Sporting Goods and Ralph Scamardella of Tao Group were among the supporters.

Golden Globes Fashion Recap

The 73rd Golden Globes had an abundance of flashy moments, but the most glamourous occasions happened before the show even started!

The Globes’ red carpet did not disappoint our resident fashionista, #HipNJ Lifestyle Correspondent Maria Falzo.  Here are her picks of the night’s best dressed:

1. Jennifer Lopez


J.Lo stunned (doesn’t she always!?) in a marigold-caped Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown with a ruched waist and high-slit.  She also donned 200 carats of Harry Winston diamonds, sparkly silver Jimmy Choo heels and a Judith Leiber clutch.

2. Alicia Vikander


Hollywood’s newest It Girl kept it all Louis Vuitton, right down to her jewelry. She wore a simple apron-front dress with ruffles and shimmering piping.

3. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley


Gold was one of the hottest colors of the evening, and no one else pulled it off like the Victoria’s Secret model in Saint Laurent Couture.

During the pre-show extravaganza, #HipNJ live blogged the festivities.  Based on your responses, YOUR best dressed was Golden Globe winner Lady Gaga in custom Versace!  (She also won best accessory with her smoking hot fiancé, Taylor Kinney!)

The most glam couple on the #redcarpet hands-down is #LadyGaga and @TaylorKinney ? #GoldenGlobes #Bravo #Versace
