Corbin coaches Yastrzemski’s grandson Mike, a senior right fielder who opened the weekend hitting .333 and has started every game since the middle of his freshman season. Carl Yastrzemski has seen two games in person, against Louisiana State in Mike’s sophomore season.

That weekend, Corbin told Yastrzemski that he did not think his grandson, who bats left-handed, had the power to put a ball over the Vanderbilt ballpark’s Green Monster, just outside the window.

Mike heard the conversation and walked off, silently. Then he faced Kevin Gausman — who would be the first pitcher taken in his draft class the next season — and lifted a fastball over the wall.

Mike autographed the ball and gave it to his grandfather, who told him, simply, “Nice swing.”

Homered off Gausman

Orioles have come to terms with 3 draft picks: 1B Trey Mancini (round 8), C Austin Wynns (round 10) & OF Mike Yastrzemski (round 14).

Mancini and Wynns are headed to Aberdeen. The younger Yaz too but he won't be there until about a few days into the season.
