On Tuesday night, those watching the Boston Red Sox host the San Francisco Giants witnessed one of the greatest moments of the Major League Baseball season.

Mike Yastrzemski, the grandson of Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski, took the field at Fenway for the very first time.

It didn't take him long to find the magic his grandfather held at the park for 23 years.

Mike received an ovation before his first at-bat and then another when he hit his first home run - and 20th of the season - at Fenway.

Check out the incredible moment.

It doesn't get any better than that. Carl played all 23 years of his historic, Hall of Fame, career in Boston. During his time inBoston, he hit 237 career home runs at Fenway. Mike has a long way to go to catch up to his grandfather - perhaps he'll play for the Red Sox at some point. Earlier this afternoon, the two walked side-by-side at Fenway in a moment captured by the Red Sox.

Baseball is better when a Yastrzemski is hitting home runs at Fenway Park.

The Giants and Red Sox are tied at five in the bottom of the seventh inning. Could Mike muster up some more magic with a game-winning hit?

Stay tuned.
