Found October 23, 2012 on Hall of Very Good:

Via Hall of Very Good:

37 years after an epic home run that sent his Boston Red Sox to a Game 7 against the eventual World Series champion Cincinnati Reds, we're still talking about Carlton Fisk.

Well...I guess.

Fisk was arrested and charged with a DUI on Monday night in Illinois after  driving his truck into a cornfield. New Lenox police say officers found the 64-year-old Fisk asleep behind the wheel of his truck and an open liquor bottle on the floor.

Fisk was placed under arrest on the scene on suspicion of DUI and taken to a nearby hospital for a check-up and was released from custody after posting bail; he has a Nov. 29 court appearance. TMZ reported that he refused a blood alcohol test. His car was impounded.

Fisk played 11 seasons with the Red Sox and 13 with the Chicago White Sox and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2000. He has an unlisted number in New Lenox and couldn't be reached for comment.

  • Carlton sure is enjoying his retirement!!!
  • Well that's what he gets for going to the hall as a Red Sox!!
  • Maybe he was hungry and wanted some corn on the cob!!
  • Oh Pudge! Don't worry...We will ALWAYS love you here in Boston! You're not the first, nor will you be the last to make a mistake..BFD! Bad side of internet is instant crap like this, good side is Fenway Faithful can send their love! <3
  • 27 years later? I think he means 37 years after the Reds / Sox series.
  • So he parked in a cornfield, took a nap. The empty liquor bottle really doesn't mean anything. Oh one could imply a great deal but when it comes to the "evidence" in a subjective manner as presented here...they got nutin'.
