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

    Well, he does have his pole;0)

     

     

    The sox had to win the last two games in 67, I was with my family at one those games. What a day that was!!! I took my name here because of that day.  Such great memories.

    lol! I kinda figured that!Wink

     

    do you still have your "impossible dream" record?

    [/QUOTE]

    No but a do have a DVD of that game.  The sox had an anniversary celebration in 07' and released the vidio of the game I was at.

    I was hoping to catch a glance of me and my family in the stands. Oh my goodness, no way!

    The footage was so grainy, you could barly see people's faces! Batters actually stayed in the batters box and pitchers on the mound. 

    No visitors in the booth and the announcer stayed right on the game.  

    I enjoyed watching it but it sure did make me feel old!!!!!

    I graduated high school in 71' so I'm not that far behind you!

    RedSox have announced a statue of Yaz will be unveiled and dedicated outside Fenway on Sept. 22

    Yaz was always a fave for NYY fans back in the day. I went to a NYY game in '69-'70, and when Yaz homered, fans of both stripes stood up and cheered. An often overlooked moment;  3-run HR in '75 ASG, when NL dominated. Mantle was a coach and led the cheering. I don't recall who won though.

    Thanks again for your service! You and the rest of your fellow soldiers were so horribly treated. Our country owes you a debt of gratitude for your sacrifices, I salute you!

    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.

     



    Rico hit two home runs in the first and second games I attended at Fenway as a kid.  Hands down criteria for favorite player status.  Plus, he appeared at the local Kelly's Hot Dog stand in Rhode Island when I was seven. 

    With no triple crowns, batting titles, and Hall of Fame accolades, I guess they won't be erecting a Rico statue.  If there's a retro Rico bobblehead out there, it'll have to do as far as idolatry is concerned.

    I do remember a couple of games that I went to when Yaz homered.

    No Rico stature, but he was one of my favorite players when I was a kid after Yaz. He was in a group with Luis Tiant, Doug Griffin and Ray Culp.

    This old Sox fan,  graduated high school 74, lol.... Remembers trading a Mantle for 2 1967 Yaz cards, after a little league game in 1967. Yaz was and always will be my favorite ball player. He was hustle before Charlie Hustle. His tenure with the Sox represents a by-gone day when a little league kid could grow into manhood and see his favorite star year in and year out with the  same team every Spring and on the last day of the season  .

    my favorite Yaz possession-Old London Yaz Coin, bright blue background.

    maybe, Pedroia will do the same.
