  1. Collecting Yastrzemski - August, 2013

    This was a very big month for not only my collection but for being a Yastrzemski fan as well! Michael was named Minor League Offensive Player of the Month for the Orioles organization & was selected for the 2013 New York-Penn All-Star Game! At the time of this writing his Aberdeen Ironbirds sit a half game up of Brooklyn for the lead in their division. I so wish that I lived closer to be able to attend some games. On September 3rd, the first 873 fans to Ripken Field will receive a Mike Yastrzemski ...

  2. Collecting Yastrzemski - July, 2013

    Well, this month certainly had more than it's fair share of ups & downs! It started off on a good note, as Michael started his career with the Aberdeen Ironbirds. In his first 29 games, he is batting .337, with 2 HR, 12 RBI & 4 SB.

    It continued to improve when I made a quick trade here for a 2002 Topps Tribute Yastrzemski Memorable Materials game used card & it got even better when I got an incredible deal on an autographed Boston Globe newspaper of Carl!

  3. Collecting Yastrzemski - June, 2013

    Well, June sure had it's share of ups & downs to end Michael's college career. It started off really nice with him not only winning Vanderbilt's Student/Athlete of the Month award, but he was also named MVP of the Nashville Regionals! It continued to improve when he was selected by the Orioles in the 14th round of the 2013 MLB draft. As they say, "All good things must come to an end" though, & the Commodores were knocked out of the Super-Regionals by Louisville, which ended ...

  4. Collecting Yastrzemski - May, 2013

    May was an exciting month to be a Yastrzemski fan! Vanderbilt's regular season came to a close this month, but not before the Commodores achieved not only their best record in school history (48-7), but they also set a new SEC wins record by going 26-3. Michael led the team in the SEC games this season batting .407 (.333 - for the season). He also joined fellow teammate, Tony Kemp, by being selected to the All-SEC first team & All-Defensive team. Here's hoping that they can win it all in ...

  5. Collecting Yastrzemski - April, 2013

    Well, if someone had told me at the beginning of the month that Boston would have the best record in the MLB at the end of the month, I'd have thought that to be a rather good April Fools Day joke! But that's exactly where they are as we head into May. What a turnaround from last season. Here's hoping that they can keep this up as the season progresses!

    Meanwhile, in Nashville, Michael & the Commodores went 14-2 this month to put their record at 39-6 going into the final month ...
