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.
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.
