San Francisco Giants rookie outfielder Mike Yastrzemski, BA’13, shared an embrace with his Hall of Famer grandfather, Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski, after catching his ceremonial first pitch at Boston’s Fenway Park on Sept. 18. The night before, the younger Yastrzemski made a lasting impression on Boston fans by homering in his first-ever major league game at the ballpark.
