Yaz Takes Five AL Titles
Remembering the first time he saw Carl Yastrzemski (the heir to his left-field post with the Red Sox) in the batting cage, Ted Williams said, "He positively quivered waiting for the next pitch." Yastrzemski collected the most hits of any American League player during the 1960s. In 1963, Yaz led the circuit with 183 hits, a .321 batting average, a .419 on-base percentage, 40 doubles, and 95 walks.
