One of the AL’s premier catchers for almost two decades, a ten-time All-Star and the all-time leader in home runs by a catcher (351) and in games caught (2,226), Carlton Fisk was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2000.
Drafted to the Boston Red Sox in 1967, Fisk was an immediate star. He hit .293 with 22 homers and a league-leading nine triples in ‘72, won a Gold Glove, and became the first player ever to win the Rookie of the Year award unanimously.
He switched Sox to the Chicago White Sox in 1981. In 1983, his steady play helped the White Sox to their first AL West title, but he hit only .176 in the ALCS as Chicago lost to Baltimore in four games. In 1984 he hit 21 homers but drove in only 43 runs, the fewest RBI ever for a player with 20 home runs. Fisk hit only .238 in 1985, but recorded career bests in both home runs (37) and RBI (107).
Fisk was released in 1993, at the age of 45.
