But here is the surest sign yet that Sabathia has truly hit the big time: Those who'd know confirm the young pitcher is dating flashy, popular tennis star Serena Williams - and that the two-sport romance shows no signs of cooling.
Word is Sabathia met Williams, the 1999 U.S. Open champion and younger sister of fellow tennis star Venus Williams, at a boxing match in Las Vegas last November. Sabathia had attended the fight at the invite of buddy (and former Indians center fielder) Kenny Lofton - and, obviously, the pitcher's eyes wandered from the ring at some point during the evening.
Sabathia, 21, is 14 months older than Serena Williams, who has been previously linked romantically to Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington.
