My Father’s Memories of Working with Carl Yastrzemski at Kahn’s-Hillshire Farm in the Early Eighties

Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Yastrzemski worked as a spokesman for Kahn’s-Hillshire Farm.  Being a well-known baseball player with a memorable Polish last name, Yastrzemski was the perfect fit to help the company grow its kielbasa and smoked sausage market share.  When Yastrzemski and the Red Sox came into town to face the Baltimore Orioles, my father got the unique opportunity and rare privilege to work alongside and get to know a future Hall of Fame baseball player.  Over the years, my father has recounted his memories of Yastrzemski and shared his autographs, pictures, and other keepsakes given to him by the Red Sox legend.
