CARL YASTRZEMSKI RUMORS

Yaz’s 3000th

Carl Yastrzemski is synonymous with Boston, as significant in the city’s iconography as Boston Common, Faneuil Hall, and the Paul Revere House. To be a Red Sox fan is to know pride in Yaz’s representation of New England’s greatest asset—doing a job without regard to glamour or grandeur. On September 12, 1979, Red Sox Nation celebrated when Yaz knocked a ball through the...

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...

Today in Halo History: Batting Champion!

On October 1st, 1970, left fielder Alex Johnson won the only batting title in Angel history.  On October 1st, Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski was leading the batting race with a .3286 average to Johnson’s .3273 average, but Boston had already played their final game of the season on September 30th, so the fate of the batting title was in Johnson’s hands.  Angel manager Lefty Phillips...

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

Carl Yastrzemski is a Boston Red Sox legend for good reason. Yaz played his entire 23-year Major League Baseball career with the Red Sox and was an 18-time All Star, a seven-time Gold Glove winner, was a member of the 3,000 hit club and was the first American League player to accumulate more than 400 home runs. He won the Triple Crown in 1967 and was named the American League MVP...

Happy Birthday, Yaz: Triple Crown Winner, Kielbasa Peddler

Carl Yastrzemski turns 75 today. One of the last of baseball’s tough guys, he’ll tell you about a time when rookie hazing meant punching a guy in the gut and looting his home, the “post game spread” was an X-rated dancer out of Chelsea, and the only valid reason for sitting out a game was that you’d been shot or sent to Vietnam. As to the scope of his awesomeness? Back...

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...
