On August 6, 1989 the Boston Red Sox retired #8 in honor of legendary left fielder Carl Yazstremski. Yaz spent his entire 23-year career with the Boston Red Sox. When Carl joined the Red Sox, he had some big shoes to fill…those of Ted Williams. He quickly proved to be a worthy successor at the plate, and even better defensively. Saying he had a strong arm is an understatemnet and he was a master at playing off the Green Monster.
