OKLAHOMA CITY -- New York Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia will be presented the Warren Spahn Award at a gala Jan. 26 in Oklahoma City.

Sabathia was chosen as the recipient of the award, given annually to baseball's top left-handed pitcher, after winning a tiebreaker with Wandy Rodriguez of the Houston Astros.

Sabathia has won the award each of the last three years, one shy of the record set by Randy Johnson from 1999 to 2002.

Details of the gala, which will be held at the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame and Jim Thorpe Museum, were announced Tuesday.
