Mike Yastrzemski hits home run at Fenway, 36 years after legendary granddad's final dinger at stadium

The last time anyone with the last name Yastrzemski homered at Fenway Park before Tuesday night was July 31, 1983, when Carl Yastrzemski did it for the Boston Red Sox against the Milwaukee Brewers.

More than 36 years later, Red Sox fans got to see a Yastrzemski hit a home run for the opposing team.
