CARL YASTRZEMSKI RUMORS

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

He won the Triple Crown in 1967 and was named the American League MVP...

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...

Yaz's grandson a Vandy dandy

At 45-6, the Vanderbilt baseball team is arguably the best in the nation, and while some of the Commodores' stars may be several years from becoming household names, one of them has a name you most certainly already know -- even if you can't spell it. Mike Yastrzemski is a left-handed, senior outfielder for the Commodores , who seem primed to make the second College World...

Yastrzemski: Somebody's got to win TC

Former Red Sox outfielder Carl Yastrzemski thinks that being in a pennant race will help Detroit's Miguel Cabrera in his attempt to win the Triple Crown. And Yaz should know: He's the last player to lead his league in batting average, homers and RBI in the same season.

Carl Yastrzemski Promises That 'Red Sox Will Be Back,' Is Surprised Nobody Has Hit for Triple Crown Since Him

Carl Yastrzemski is unique in a couple of ways. The first, of course, will always be the uniqueness with a name that is impervious to spellchecking. The second, which is more likely to change, is that he is the last man to hit for baseball's Triple Crown. Yaz did it back in 1967, and now Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera is in the hunt this year. When asked if he believed...

Has the Triple Crown lost its luster?

Nobody has won the Triple Crown in the majors since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Nobody has won the Triple Crown in the National League since Joe "Ducky" Medwick in 1937. Back when those Triple Crowns were won, that was considered an accomplishment of epic proportions. 45 years after Yaz's Triple Crown, Detroit's Miguel Cabrera is the latest star poised to make...
