1,567


Carl Yastrzemski is special to Boston sports fans for so many reasons. He is, of course, celebrated in large part because of what he did on the field during his 23-year Hall of Fame career with the Red Sox. For that, he is one of the most popular players in team history.

However, he's also celebrated for the way in which he embraced the city of Boston, the region of New England and its fans.

So, on Yaz's 72nd birthday, it's only fitting that NESN celebrates the birthday of a legend. See the video above for more.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
