The San Francisco Giants called up the grandson of Boston Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski on Saturday, and fans are doing their best to get the pronunciation down.
Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski was wrapping up his first pregame routine in the big leagues when he began signing autographs for fans at Oracle Park. A young Giants fan needed some confirmation on how to pronounce his last name.

The 28-year-old was batting .316 with 12 home runs in Triple-A .
