Biography:

Sport speaker Carlton Fisk is probably best remembered for seemingly waving his game winning home run fair against the Cincinnati Reds in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series. The Boston Red Sox legend was a fierce competitor and a natural-born leader behind the plate for 24 years with the Red Sox and the Chicago White Sox. He still holds the record for the most years served behind the plate. Carlton retired from America’s Favorite Pastime in 1993 and joined a host of the game’s greats in the Hall of Fame in 2000.

Carlton stuck close to home and attended the University of New Hampshire on a basketball scholarship. By his sophomore season he had become a standout member of the UNH baseball team and was picked up 4th overall in the 1967 MLB draft by the Boston Red Sox. His first full season in the big leagues yielded Carlton his first Gold Glove award and the AL Rookie of the Year award. He endured a horrific knee injury in 1974 and the doctor told him he would never return to play baseball again. As we all know, this Red Sox legend would not only return to baseball but hit that fateful home run that sent the World Series to Game 7 and an eventual title win. He spent the last 13 seasons of his career with the White Sox.

After a few season spent away from the game of baseball, Carlton returned to the White Sox as a team ambassador, and a member of the team’s speaker bureau. In 2005, the Red Sox slugger was enshrined at Fenway Park when they named the left field foul pole after him, the Fisk Foul Pole. Carlton is a supporter of the Cancer Support Center and he and his wife serve on the Honorary Board.
