BostonIrish.com joins with the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, September 18 for an annual "Half Way to St. Patrick's Day" game, The San Francisco Giants will be in town for the match-up, and the team features a surprise rookie outfielder, Mike Yastrzemski.
The 29 year old Yastrzemski grew up in Andover MA. His father, Carl Jr. (who went by Mike),played college baseball for the Florida State Seminoles baseball team, and played professionally in the minor leagues from 1984 to 1988. Carl Jr. died at the age of 43 from a blood clot after having hip surgery. His grandfather, Carl Yastrzemski, is a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and began teaching young Mike hitting during his grandson’s freshman year in high school.
The Giants promoted Yastrzemski to the Major Leagues on May 25, 2019, and he made his debut the same day, going 0 for 3 with a run scored in a 10–4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. He collected his first career hit, a single, the following day but was thrown out returning to first base and went 3 for 4 with a run scored in the Giants 6–2 loss. Yastrzemski hit his first career home run off Andrew Cashner on May 31, 2019. On August 16, 2019, he hit three home runs against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field, including the game-winning home run in the top of the 11th inning.(Source: Wikipedia)
