2013 SoB Hall of Fame Inductee: Carl Yastrzemski

Carl Yastrzemski (nndb.com)

For the first time since the inaugural inductee Ted Williams in 2009, the Red Sox have a member inducted into the SoB Hall of fame. Apparently, the Sox love producing left fielder legends (sorry, Carl Crawford), as Carl Yastrzemski, who also played some first base, is enshrined for 2013. Though Yaz never won a championship, he spent a staggering 23 years in the major leagues, and even more impressive is that they were all with the Red Sox.

Yaz made 18 All-Star games (15 straight), won seven gold gloves and won the 1967 AL MVP. Winning the Triple Crown in 1967 likely boosted his MVP chances in that year, and it was the last Triple Crown until Miguel Cabrera accomplished the feat in 2012. Over his career, Yaz had 3,419 hits (including 646 doubles, 59 triples and 452 homers) in 11,988 at-bats, to go along with 1,845 walks.

Yaz played in two World Series, making a case for MVP in a losing effort to the Cardinals in 1967. He had three home runs, two doubles, five singles, four walks, five RBIs and four runs scored. The Sox also lost a seven-game World Series, to the Reds, in 1975.

Carl Yastrzemski is one of a plethora of baseball legends to wear the Red Sox uniform, and Sports of Boston is proud to have him as the 2013 inductee in our Hall of Fame.
