Carlton Fisk

Baseball’s most durable catcher with 24 years behind the plate, Carlton “Pudge” Fisk caught more games (2,226) than any player in history. Fisk was the first player ever to win the Rookie of the Year award unanimously. The 11-time All-Star hit 376 career home runs, including a record-setting 351 as a catcher, since bested by Mike Piazza. His most memorable home run came in Game Six of the 1975 World Series – a 12th inning blast off the left field foul pole at Fenway Park – giving his Red Sox a 7-6 win over Cincinnati. His tremendous pride and work ethic were respected by both teammates as well as the opposition. Fisk was elected into the National Baseball Hall of fame in 2000.
