BOSTON (CBS)- What has changed in the world of the Boston Red Sox and their fans since the magical year of 2004?
That’s what WBZ NewsRadio 1030′s Carl Stevens asked Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski while the Sox legend was on the field at Fenway Park for a fundraiser on Tuesday.
“One of the things that I think is expected now, or the fans want them to win the WS every year; which is almost impossible,” said Yaz.

While wanting a World Series championship every year may be a stretch, Yastrezemski thinks this year the Red Sox have a great shot.
“It could be this year also. I kind of have that feeling,” Yaz said, who watches the games on TV every night.

Yaz and hundreds of kids were on the Fenway Park field Tuesday for an annual event put on by The Genesis Fund. Founded in 1982 by Dr. Murray Feingold, The Genesis Fund has raised over $26 million to help New England area children born with birth defects, genetic diseases and intellectual disabilities.
The day at Fenway gives the children a chance to run the bases, field a ball off the Green Monster, and take a swing for the fences.
Yastrzemski has been involved with The Genesis Fund since 1984.
“It’s always a great day for them,” the Red Sox Hall of Famer said.
