Carlton Fisk was drafted 4th overall by the Boston Red Sox in 1967 and joined the team in 1971. Due to his 6’2", 220 lb. frame, Fisk was nicknamed “Pudge”. In 1972, his first full season with the Red Sox, he won a Gold Glove Award and was named the AL Rookie of the Year. Fisk is best known for “waving fair” his game-winning home run in the 12th inning of Game 6 in the 1975 World Series. The 11-time All-Star played 2,226 games behind the plate, a record that stood until June 17, 2009, when the record was broken by another “Pudge”, Ivan Rodriguez. Fisk was enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000. This Rawlings Name Model bat has been hand signed and inscribed "HOF 2000" by Carlton Fisk. Each autograph is guaranteed authentic and includes an individually numbered, tamper-evident TRISTAR Authentic hologram.
