Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

His grandfather sure is proud. It took a while for Mike Yastrzemski to catch on regularly with a Major League team. But since joining the San Francisco Giants last season, he’s put some work in.

San Diego Padres star pitcher Chris Paddack found that out first-hand during Wednesday night’s game in San Francisco.

Check out Yastrzemski go yard over the right field fence and into the McCovey Cove for the first water shot of the 2020 MLB season.

Who says fans can’t get souvenirs during a 2020 season that they are unlikely to be in attendance?

We know baseball is back when a spot in the Pacific Ocean that Barry Bonds made popular shows up for the first time.

As for the 29-year-old Yastrzemski, he hit .272 with 21 homers and 55 RBI during a breakout performance with the Giants last season.
