Prep's Yastrzemski headed to Vanderbilt on scholarship
The grandson of Red Sox Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski didn't waste much time in joining the baseball ranks of the Southeast Conference by choosing the Commodores. He gave Vanderbilt baseball coach Tim Corbin a verbal commitment on his Sept. 4-6 visit and signed with the school last week.
Boston College offered Yastrzemski the same type of tuition package as Vandy did. He also checked out Brown and Harvard, which also recruited him.
"I was sold on Vanderbilt right away," Yastrzemski said. "It was exactly what I was looking for ... hard-nosed baseball. I especially liked the attitude on the field and how they prepare mentally. The coaching staff is excellent, too. Coach Corbin grew up in Wolfeboro on Lake Winnepesaukee."
