The Captain & The Kid [VIDEO]
For the first time since 1983 the PA announcer at Fenway Park will bellow out the name 'Yastrzemski' tonight when the Red Sox host the San Francisco Giants.
Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski's grandson, Mike Yastrzemski, will play for the first time at Fenway and you can hear the game live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket. Coverage begins at 6:10pm.
Yaz retired from baseball in 1983 after playing for the Sox for 23 seasons.
Captain Carl and the 1967 'Impossible Dream' year team re-defined Red Sox history, winning the AL pennant and taking the Cardinals to seven games in the World Series. The season turned everything around for the franchise...
Mike Yastrzemski played in the Orioles farm system for years but never got in a major league game.
That changed back in May when the Giants called him up and he's played most everyday since.
At the age of 29, MIke Yaz is hitting .265 with 19 home runs and 51 RBI.
