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.

Carl Yastrzemski Puts David Ortiz Ahead Of Himself As A Red Sox Hitter

When it comes to Boston Red Sox history, there’s no argument over who the best hitter is. Ted Williams’ incredible .344 career batting average and 521 home runs make him Boston’s king. But the No. 2 guy has come into question recently. A few years ago, you could ask anyone on the streets of Boston, and they’d likely tell you Carl Yastrzemski was the Red Sox’s second-best...

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...
