    Another great article! Yaz was one of my favorite players growing up. I know some people have said he was not friendly (he passed me up for an autograph when I was a kid) and some have even questioned his selection into the Hall of Fame. But he was a true Red Sox and he accomplished many great achievements throughout his career. And the fact that he had to follow the great Ted Williams….well that makes him even more impressive. Others may have buckled under that type of pressure. Yaz was clutch and a great defensive player. That and his batting numbers make him a HOF’er to me!

    This was a fine article. At my age (80’s) Ted is my hero, but Yaz was the second greatest left fielder in Red Sox history. Good work Herb–Go Red Sox! D. O, D.
