While Yaz was still a senior in high school, the New York Yankees made a pitch. Though not allowed to sign Yastrzemski to an actual contract until after he graduated high school, Yankees scout Ray Garland was still welcomed into the household to talk hypotheticals. He traded bonus numbers with Carl’s father, writing $60,000 on a piece of paper at the dining room table. Carl’s dad wrote out $100,000. Garland reacted dramatically, flipping his pencil in the air and hitting the ceiling as he exclaimed, “$100,000? Are you crazy? The Yankees will never pay that.” The Yankees never got the opportunity, despite even owner Dan Topping becoming involved. The elder Yaz told Garland, “Nobody throws a pencil in my house. Get the hell out and never come back.”8 That was it for the New York Yankees.
