NESN’s Tom Caron sat down with Hall of Famer and Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski for an exclusive two-part interview on the occasion of his 75th birthday.
The first part of this wide-ranging interview will air during NESN’s Red Sox pre-game show tonight at 6 PM. The second part of the interview will air tomorrow (Friday, August 22), Yastrzemski’s 75th birthday, also during NESN’s Red Sox pre-game show.
The interview includes Yastrzemski’s thoughts on following Ted Williams as the Red Sox left fielder, how he played the Green Monster, and the 1967 Impossible Dream season. Yaz also talks about if he enjoyed his baseball career and now, over 30 years after he retired from the game, how he sees his legacy.
