Hall-of-Famer Fisk pleads guilty to DUI

The SportsXchange

Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk pleaded guilty Thursday to a drunken-driving charge.

Fisk, 64, received a sentence of one year of court supervision, must pay $1,250 in court costs and undergo a drug and alcohol evaluation and counseling. Police found him asleep in his pickup truck in a suburban Chicago cornfield on Oct. 22, with an open bottle of whiskey on the floor.

Fisk's lawyer, Stephen White, said in Will County court that Fisk wanted to accept responsibility for his actions.

"He stepped up to the plate," White said.

Fisk's signature moment came in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series, while playing for the Boston Red Sox, when he won the game with a 12th-inning home run.
