David Ortiz passes Carl Yastrzemski on all-time Red Sox home run list (VIDEO)

The “Big Papi” farewell tour made its latest stop at a familiar location this weekend. And at Yankee Stadium, David Ortiz eclipsed a Boston legend. In the fourth inning of Sunday night’s series finale, Ortiz hit a solo shot off New York starter Luis Severino. It marked his 453rd home run in a Red Sox uniform — which put him past Carl Yastrzemski and alone into second...

Olde Sox: Carl Yastrzemski Was The Most Red Sox

Ted Williams may be the greatest Red Sox player of all time. David Ortiz may currently be the most beloved. But I’d like to make the argument that Carl Yastrzemski is simply the most Red Sox player of all time. Yaz was nearly unique in Red Sox lore in that he played for over two decades, only spent his career with a single franchise, and possessed both longevity and an astounding...

Carl Yastrzemski’s otherworldly 1967 MVP campaign may never be matched again

Among the clichés which flood the baseball vernacular, one does not hold water. All games do not count the same. Just ask Bryce Harper and Josh Donaldson, who garnered MVP honors last week. But there was no more graphic portrayal of this theory than 1967. Two years before divisional play came into existence, the race for the American League pennant and representation in the World...

Roger Clemens: I would wear Red Sox hat on Hall Of Fame plaque if inducted

Roger Clemens donned many baseball caps during his career. But which one would he wear on his plaque if he gets inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame? “It would obviously be a Boston (Red Sox) hat,” Clemens said on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “Toucher & Rich” on Thursday. “That’s where I got my start and my nickname. It’s where I grew up.” Clemens won three...

Carl Yastrzemski Reflects On Red Sox Career On 75th Birthday (Videos)

Carl Yastrzemski: Jim Rice ‘Earned All The Success He Had’ (Video)

There’s a reason Carl Yastrzemski and Jim Rice are revered as Boston Red Sox legends — they worked harder than anyone to become the best. Yastrzemski, an 18-time All-Star and a seven-time Gold Glove winner, who also won the Triple Crown in 1967 and was named the American League MVP that same year, is one of the best hitters in MLB history because he was out there every day and...

Josh Wilker on Luis Tiant

Carl Yastrzemski had heard cheers before. Just five years earlier, he’d led the Red Sox to a miracle pennant, setting his previously moribund home ballpark ablaze, but this new sound was different. Deeper, fuller, more intimate, more human, more alive. In 1972, Fenway Park turned into one gigantic heart, thumping out a pulse in the name of the gnomish, barrel-chested man at the...
