Happy # 82 Carl Yastrzemski


Carl Yastrzemski Baseball Career Highlights & Early Life | Hall of ...
We remember Carl Yastrzemski who was born in New York on this day in 1939.  He broke with Boston in 1961 and won batting titles in 1963, 1967 & 1968.

Yaz, as he was known, retired after the 1983 season and went into The Hall of Fame in 1989.

He wore # 8, played a great left field and later first base for 20 seasons.

Yaz won the Triple Crown in 1967 and led Boston to the World Series that year.  The Red Sox lost to Bob Gibson and the Cardinals in game 7.  He returned in 1975 and played a huge role in that one too.

Great player all around: 3419 hits! 452 hrs! 1845 RBIs.
