Hawk is pissed there is no Yaz statue in Fenway. Says someone in Boston’s front office must not like Yaz.

Hawk, you can stop e-mailing B-R:
When I think about Yastrzemski’s career, one of the first things that always comes to mind is his league-leading .301 batting average in 1968, a year of very low offense.
Here is that season for Yaz:
Year G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS OPS+ TB 1968 157 664 539 90 162 32 2 23 74 119 90 .301 .426 .495 .922 170 267

Deadspin: Last month, the Red Sox took young Michael Yastrzemski, grandson of Carl, in the 36th round of MLB’s First-Year Player draft. The 18-year-old outfielder committed to Vanderbilt University, although he did hint that the chance to play for his grandfather’s old team could change his mind. But since the Red Sox organization seems to have forgotten how to spell one of the most revered last names in team history, perhaps Vanderbilt’s a better fit right now. Y-A-S-T-R-Z-E-M-S-K-I.
