Happy # 69 Carlton Fisk
We say happy # 69 to Carlton Fisk. We remember him for that 12th inning home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series. I saw that live on TV and it was a great moment and game.
Fisk also had a great career: .269 career batting average, 2,356 hits, 376 HR and 1,330 RBI.
On May 8, 1984 Fisk caught all 25 innings in a 7-6 victory over Milwaukee. Isn’t that like playing 3 games in one day? A week later, he hit for the cycle!
His best season was 1985: 37 HR and 105 RBI.
Great catcher and ambassador for the game of baseball.
