Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk – No. 87
Carlton Fisk will always be remembered most for ending one of the most thrilling postseason games in history with a 12th-inning home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series. Fisk hopping down the line trying to wave the ball fair as it snuck by the left field pole is an imagine ingrained in the history of this franchise.
Fisk was much more than one fleeting moment though. The 11-time All-Star earned three Silver Slugger awards over a 24-year career, hitting .269 with a .797 OPS and 376 home runs.
The Hall of Famer spent the first 11 seasons of his career with the Red Sox. He was the Rookie of the Year in 1972 when he won a Gold Glove and finished fourth on the AL MVP ballot.
Fisk hit .284/.356/.481 during his tenure with the Red Sox. His 129 wRC+ and 38.3 WAR are the highest among catchers in franchise history, per FanGraphs.
A controversial contract mishap resulted in Fisk hitting free agency after the 1980 season. He signed with the Chicago White Sox, where he spent the final 13 years of his career.
