The Carl Yastrzemski Song

Carl Yastrzemski, "The Yaz," celebrates his 77th birthday on August 22nd.  The Red Sox star spent his entire baseball career with Boston, with 1967 marking his best year.  The Yaz won the Triple Crown of baseball, a record held until 2012.  Boston radio host Jess Cain put together this catchy little ditty, adapted from a ragtime tune, which was part of the "Impossible Dream" album, commemorating the 1967 Red Sox season.
