This day in Red Sox history
1961: Carl Yastrzemski makes his major league debut. He singles in his first at-bat, then grounds out twice and strikes out twice. The Kansas City Athletics beat the Red Sox 5-2.

Stephen Drew gets his first start as Boston’s shortstop
Stephen Drew is expected to make his Red Sox debut at shortstop on Wednesday. Drew sustained a concussion on March 7 when he was hit by a pitch in the helmet. Drew will be replacing current Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias, who has been red hot to start the season. Before being injured Drew went 3-for-16 (.188) in Grapefruit League play.

If you could only protest a judgement call, Joe Maddon would have a case
Rule 4.19 of the Major League Baseball rule book states: Each league shall adopt rules governing procedure for protesting a game, when a manager claims that an umpire’s decision is in violation of these rules. No protest shall ever be permitted on judgment decisions by the umpire. In all protested games, the decision of the League President shall be final.
