Midweek Trivia: C.C. Sabathia Edition

On Monday, the Orioles roughed up the Yankees’ prized off-season acquisition, C.C. Sabathia, a monster of a pitcher (6’7″, 290 pounds) who earns a monster of a salary ($161 million). The Orioles once had a monster of a pitcher of their own (same height, less weight), though by modern considerations his salary during a 14-year baseball career would hardly move the scale.

This former Oriole also played basketball while he was in college. And while current Bird Mark Hendrickson is one of roughly a dozen athletes to have played in the NBA and MLB, this reliever is the only player ever to have won an NCAA title in basketball and a World Series. Who is he, and for which championship teams did he play?
