    DAD & Bill-806 will be there !!!


     

    We are going to Fenway from here in Fla for a major birthday at that time. Teddyballgame and Yaz are truly the most beloved in  all Sawks lore IMO. Glad this tribute to Yaz has been built.

    Yaz was the 1st Red Sox player I idolized as a young boy in the 70's. Well deserved.

    I'm sure it will be, somewhere on the statue.

    They usually have a plaque with player info, including the full name.

    The Red Sox announced Wednesday they will unveil a statue of Hall of Fame left fielder Carl Yastrzemski on Sept. 22.

     

    The statue will be the third outside Fenway Park, and it will be located between the statue of Ted Williams and “The Teammates” statue near the Gate B entrance.

    The statue will depict Yastrzemski tipping his helmet to the crowd as he famously did Oct. 2, 1983, after his final at-bat.

    “This is quite an honor,” Yastrzemski said in a team news release. “To have a bronze statue at Fenway Park is something I never could have imagined, and I am very grateful to the Red Sox for this kind gesture.”

    The statue will be unveiled at an 11 a.m. ceremony prior to the Red Sox’ game vs. the Blue Jays. Yastrzemski will also throw out the first pitch that day.

    Yastrzemski played his entire 23-year major-league career with the Red Sox. He had a career .285 batting average with 452

    Yaz was and always will be my favorite player. I thought it was so cool when he hit three home runs in a game and it was on my birthday.
