Prior to the game, the Red Sox unveiled a statue in honor of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski (shown with former teammates Dwight Evans and Jim Rice) near Gate B outside Fenway Park. It depicts Yaz tipping his cap to the Fenway fans after his final at bat in 1983.

I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
