CC Sabathia will get an emotional curtain call in Cleveland on Tuesday night.
MLB announced Friday it has invited the Yankees left hander to the All-Star Game at Progressive Field, where he pitched the first eight seasons of his career.
ESPN reports that the 38-year-old veteran, who is retiring at the end of the season, will be honored before the game and “recognized for his contributions to the game and his longtime service to the community.”
“We are delighted that CC and his family will join us in Cleveland, where his major league career began,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “We look forward to celebrating his many accomplishments during our All-Star Game festivities.”

Sabathia won 106 games and the 2007 AL Cy Young Award with the Indians before being traded to the Brewers in 2008. He signed with the Yankees in free agency following the season.
The six-time All-Star is 5-4 with a 4.04 ERA this season.
