Fisk etched himself permanently into baseball
history with a 12th inning game winning home run in game 6 of the 1975
World Series--the game that is often declared the "greatest single
World Series game ever played." If you don't remember his body movement
urging the ball to stay fair, you're sure to see it on numerous retrospectives.
The seven time All Star had an excellent career and was the 12th catcher
to be inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame in 2000, the same year his
number 27 was formally retired at Fenway Park.
