A sellout crowd packed Fenway Park and then waited 20 minutes for the rain to subside. Not a long wait to honor a man who had spent 23 years donning a Red Sox uniform. When he started in 1961, Carl Yastrzemski was just a kid charged with the unenviable task of replacing Ted Williams in left field while playing for a team familiar with finishing at the bottom of the American League. As America struggled for civil rights, mourned assassinations, and went to Vietnam, Woodstock and the moon, Yastrzemski helped lead the Red Sox to the “Impossible Dream” World Series of 1967. He grew up during the revitalization of baseball in Boston. When America came to grips with Watergate, long gas lines, and hostages, Yastrzemski and memorable Red Sox teams played before an electrified Fenway Park. And as Americans feared AIDS, mourned John Lennon, and started talking about personal computers, Yaz had distinguished himself with over 3,000 hits and over 400 home runs. Now, at the age of 44, he was calling it a career and Yaz Day was a time to reminisce and say goodbye before an otherwise meaningless game at the end of the season.
