SF Yastrzemski Hits Home Run for the First Time in 5 Years in Front of ‘Grandfather’s Retired Number’

Boston legend’ Carl Yastrzemski won MVP award in 1967 with three batting crowns.

Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski (33), a close teammate of Lee Jeong-hoo (25, San Francisco Giants), is the most famous ‘grandson player’ in the Major League Baseball (MLB).

His grandfather is Carl Yastrzemski (84), a legendary slugger who played for the Boston Red Sox for 23 seasons from 1961 to 1983.

Cal participated in the All-Star Game 18 times, and in 1967, he won the triple crown for batting average (0.326), home runs (44), and RBI (121) and was awarded the American League Most Valuable Player (MVP). 카지노사이트위키

His uniform number 8 remains permanently retired at Boston’s home stadium, Fenway Park, and a statue of him welcomes fans at the entrance to the stadium.

Mike met his grandfather, Carl, who visited the stadium ahead of the San Francisco-Boston match held at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, USA on the 3rd (Korean time).

The San Francisco Chronicle, a local San Francisco newspaper, reported that Mike visited the clubhouse before the game and introduced his grandfather to his teammates.

The person who was most excited to meet the legend was San Francisco coach Bob Melvin.

Coach Melvin, who grew up watching Cal’s legendary games in person as a child, never had a chance to play with Cal when he debuted in the big leagues in 1985.

Instead, he played in Boston for one season in 1993 and encountered traces of Karl left all over the stadium.

After meeting Carl, Coach Melvin was happy and said, “I was so shocked that I couldn’t speak.

There are great days when playing baseball, and today was one of those moments.”

In this game, Mike Yastrzemski hit a go-ahead home run in the third inning.

This is the second home run arched in five years at Fenway Park, ‘Grandfather’s Stadium’, following his debut season in the big league in 2019.

Carl left the stadium before the game and was unable to see his grandson’s home run in person.
