He was handed one of the toughest jobs in the history of baseball: take over left field in Fenway Park from Ted Williams. Undaunted, Carl Michael Yastrzemski created his own legendary career—landing in the Hall of Fame.

The Red Sox organization will honor that outstanding career with a new bronze statue outside Gate B at Fenway Park. The "Yaz" statue will stand between the current Williams statue and the one dedicated to "The Teammates" (Johnny Pesky, Bobby Doerr, and The Splendid Splinter).

Yaz spent his entire 23-year career with the Red Sox—hitting .285, with 452 HRs and 1,844 RBIs in 3,308 games.
