In Nomini Patris Et Filli Et Spiritu Sancti Amen, Oremus-Carl Yastremzki
Triple Crown Winner in "The Impossible Dream" Year of 1967, where he led the A L in Homers, average and hits. He replaced Ted Williams in L F At Fenway Park in 1961;
In '04, he threw out the 1st Ball in Game 1 of the '04 World Series, where the Sox won it all;
I remember a "Kraft Music Hall" Special on N B C, where Don Rickles, a Comedian and Insult Specialist as well as Amigo of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, mispronounced his name as "Yeahyatzki". I never laughed so hard in my life. Tonight, I was weeping a bit;
Get well, Carl and that's an order;
In Nomini Patris Et Filli Et Spiritu Sancti, Amen!
