    I just watched Mike Yastrzemski come to bat in the Orioles-Yankees exhibition game tonight.

    I saw his grandfather, Carl, play against the Yankees. Yes, grandfather.

    Pretty sure that’s a first for me – the grandson thing. Ugh.

      I think the grandson thing is a first for me too.

      At least Carl played all the way until the famous “Bucky Dent” game in ’78, which I’m sure a lot of us remember. The thing is, I saw him play in his Triple Crown season of ’67 too.

      Gotta get used to it. The managers and coaches seemed so OLD when I first became a fan. Now most of them are younger than me.

      @ Ben M.:
      Yup. I can still see Yaz pushing the ball past Willow for #3000.

      Funny, I heard Yaz on the radio down in Miami, in my car, when Yaz hit his 3,000th. Funny as in “coincidental”, with Steve. NOT so funny because it “seems” like 10 years ago ;)

      Look at it this way: you’re still young enough that you can probably get around on a CC Sabathia fastball…
