#63 - Carl "Yaz" Yastrzemski

There are very few “lifers” in the Major Leagues, but Carl “Yaz” Yastrzemski played his entire 23-year baseball career with the Boston Red Sox (1961–1983) and became one of the all time “faces of the franchise.” He was primarily a left fielder, but also played 33 games as a third baseman and mostly was a first baseman and designated hitter later in his career. Yastrzemski is an 18-time All-Star,  woneven Gold Gloves, is a member of the 3,000 hit club, and Yastrzemski was the first American League player in that club to also accumulate over 400 home runs. He is second on the all-time list for games played, third for total at-bats, and the Red Sox’ all-time leader in career RBIs, runs, hits, singles, doubles, total bases, games played, and is third on the team’s list for home runs behind Ted Williams and David Ortiz.

In 1967 Yastrzemski achieved a peak in his career, leading the Red Sox to the American League pennant for the first time in over two decades and was voted the 1967 American League MVP.
