Mike Yastrzemski fulfills dream, receives standing ovation at Fenway Park

Mike Yastrzemski fulfills dream, receives standing ovation at Fenway Park

UPDATE, 8:25 p.m.: Yazstremski hit a home run to center field in his third at-bat in the fourth inning off Nathan Eovaldi to extend the Giants 5-1 lead. It was his 20th homer of the season.

Mike Yastrzemski, the grandson of Boston Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski, made his Fenway Park debut Tuesday night as a member of the San Francisco Giants. 

In his first at-bat, the Fenway faithful rose to their feet and gave the younger Yaz a well-deserved standing ovation.

Check it out.

Playing at Fenway is something he's always dreamed of, and before he took the field, he noted he was looking forward to soaking in and appreciating the experience. 

Although he was excited to take the same field and patrol the same position in left field in front of the Green Monster where his grandfather once played, Yastrzemski noted that being in the stands for the 1999 All-Star Game and Home Run Derby at Fenway were more overwhelming than the thought of actually playing in Boston. 

Playing in such a historic ballpark is memorable to begin with, but Yastrzemski, 29, will be battling some pretty tough expectations throughout the Giants' three-game series at Fenway. It doesn't seem like he'll let that get to him though.

The Andover, Mass., native is putting together a nice rookie season for the Giants with a .265 batting average, 19 home runs, 51 RBI and a .833 OPS. What's more interesting about those stats, though, is that they almost mirror his grandfather's rookie season with Boston -- .266 with 11 homers, 80 RBI and a .721 OPS. 

Before the game, Yastrzemski and his grandfather took a stroll through left. We can only imagine what they talked about -- probably discussing how to play the Monster. 

While the younger Yaz had plenty of family watching him make his Fenway debut. His 80-year-old grandfather left the park before the game began (he said he'd be too nervous to watch in person) but said he'll be back at Fenway for the games Wednesday and Thursday.

Mike Yastrzemski, grandson of Carl Yastrzemski, makes unbelievable diving catch

San Francisco Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski is having a rookie season that undoubtedly is making his grandfather proud.

The grandson of Boston Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski is getting the job done both at the plate and in the field. "Young Yaz" entered Thursday night's game with 17 home runs, 47 RBI, and a .849 OPS, then proceeded to make this incredible diving grab:

Just like his seven-time Gold Glove award-winning grandpa.

That isn't the first time Mike Yaz has reminded us of the Hall of Famer this year, either. The 29-year-old crushed his first career walk-off homer back in July and had a three-HR game two weeks ago.
