Default Yaz's grandson to make MLB debut with Giants

After more than six years in the minor leagues, Mike Yastrzemski -- the grandson of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski -- will make his major league debut Saturday after being called up for the first time.

Yastrzemski will start in left field for the San Francisco Giants and will bat seventh against the Arizona Diamondbacks.-espn

I got to watch him play a lot in the Orioles minor leagues and always thought he'd make a fine 4th outfielder. Nice guy too, glad to see his years of grinding pay off.

When I used to own a weekend home out in eastern Long Island, I would often drive through the town of Bridgehampton and down a bucolic street called Cook's Lane. There were turn of the century wooden homes lined up on one side, and a big cornfield on the other.

Yaz grew up in Bridgehampton, and was a baseball phenom there in the early fifties. And one of those homes on Cook's Lane had a sign nailed to a tree which read "Yazberry Farms." I never learned if that was Yaz's birthplace, a cousin's home, or just a tribute to a local hero. But I always made sure to catch it when I drove by.

Hope Mike makes it in the bigs as I am also a lifelong Giants fan.

Mike has had a great start to his mlb career. He’s been productive and the giants put him in the #2 slot. I got to see him in Baltimore Saturday. Very happy for him.

Always hoped the O's would call him up and give him a chance. Had some decent minor league seasons.

Here is a photo I took of Mike back in 2013 right after he was drafted out of Vanderbilt with the Class A Aberdeen Ironbirds and the other is one I took of him last Sunday when the Giants were in Baltimore:

Saw mike at Citi too. Great to have another Yastrzemski in the majors. I have to make room for Giants gear with my Sox stuff.

I think that makes you first cousins once removed? I never get that right.
