NESN and Berkshire Bank have fun Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month — honoring the impression, affect and achievements of the Asian neighborhood in sports activities.
Jeremy Wu-Yelland was a little bit of a shock choose for the Boston Red Sox once they drafted him within the fourth spherical (No. 118 general) in 2020. But the pitching prospect has confirmed himself in his brief time within the system.
But the 22-year-old promised he would return to the sector quickly, an outlook that may shock nobody who’s conversant in his story.
In an interview with NESN’s Tom Caron in March throughout Spring coaching, Wu-Yelland defined how his household and his Asian American heritage inspire him to achieve Major League Baseball.
Wu-Yelland, whose maternal aspect of the household is Chinese, has a tattoo of his Chinese title — “Light Of The Sun In The Morning” — on his proper arm.
“I was the first son in the family in two or three generations,” Wu-Yelland instructed Caron in a video that may air later this month. “Just the way that the culture is over there, sons take on the family, they take care of people. They provide. And I’m happy to take on that challenge. Part of that goes into my name. The sun had risen and the night was over.”
