Happy # 73 to Carlton Fisk

We remember Carlton Fisk who was born in Vermont on this day in 1947.

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.

Beyond that, 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.
