San Francisco Giants rookie Mike Yastrzemski made an emotional return to his home state of Massachusetts on Tuesday, playing his first MLB game at Boston’s Fenway Park. The name should be familiar to you: Yastrzemski is the grandson of Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski.
In the top of the fourth inning, Mike Yastrzemski authored a special moment his family and friends will never forget.
With the Giants leading 4-1, Yastrzemski launched a home run to straightaway center field at Fenway, where his grandfather hit 237 home runs in his Hall of Fame career. It was the 20th homer of the season for the 29-year-old. (READ MORE) by Jace Evans | USA TODAY
For 52 years, nothing rivaled the emotions of winning the Triple Crown, the MVP and a Gold Glove all while leading the Boston Red Sox to an American League pennant for Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski.

When Mike Yastrzemski is announced as the Giants’ leadoff hitter Tuesday night, it’ll mark the first time his famous last name will be used to introduce a batter at Fenway Park in 36 years.
Yastrzemski’s grandfather, Hall of Fame outfielder Carl Yastrzemski, will be watching from home Tuesday but plans to attend Wednesday’s game in person. The 80-year-old Sox legend knows the moment will be an emotional one.
“I think the only way I can compare it to anything would be if I compared it to the ’67 season,” Carl Yastrzemski said before doing a TV interview at the park Tuesday. “That’s what it means to me and being here. It’ll be the first time that Yastrzemski will be announced on the field since ’83.” (READ MORE) by Chris Cotillo | MassLive.com
