Carlton Fisk is a former Major League Baseball catcher who played for 24 years with the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox. Carlton Fisk was elected to the baseball Hall of Fame in 2000. Carlton Fisk was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 1967.
In Fisk's long career, he caught 2,226 games, more than any other catcher in history. He was an 11-time All-Star and hit 376 career home runs. On June 13, 2005, the Boston Red Sox honored Fisk and the 12th-inning home run that won Game 6 of the 1975 World Series by naming the left field foul pole where it landed the 'Fisk Pole'. After the June 13th ceremony in Boston, Fisk received an honorary World Series ring from the Red Sox commemorating their 2004 World Series victory.
Fisk is also one of a small minority of baseball players who are embraced by the fans of two teams. The Chicago White Sox retired his uniform number 72 on September 14, 1997. The Boston Red Sox retired his uniform number 27 on September 4, 2000. He is one of eight players to have their uniform number retired by at least two teams.
The defining moment of Fisk's career came in the 12th inning of Game 6 of the 1975 World Series at Fenway Park in Boston. He hit Cincinnati Reds pitcher Pat Darcy's second pitch down the left field line that appeared to be heading into foul territory. The image of Fisk jumping and waving the ball fair as he made his way to first base is considered by many to be one of baseball's greatest moments. The ball struck the foul pole, giving the Boston Red Sox a 7-6 victory and forcing a seventh and deciding game of the World Series.
