CARL YASTRZEMSKI RUMORS

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...

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...

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...

Yastrzemski leads Vandy past Illinois 10-4

Mike Yastrzemski doubled twice, tripled and drove in three runs to lead No. 2 overall seed Vanderbilt to a 10-4 victory over Illinois in an NCAA regional Saturday night. Tony Kemp, the Southeastern Conference player of the year, added four hits and scored three runs as the Commodores (53-9) rallied from a two-run deficit to advance to their fifth straight regional final. Four players...

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. ''In '67, the Triple Crown was never even mentioned once,'' Yastrzemski said Wednesday...

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...
