    Carlton Fisk charged with DUI

    Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk was charged with a DUI in New Lenox, Ill., on Monday after he was found unconscious behind the wheel of his vehicle, which was found in the middle of a corn field, according to New Lenox police.

    "Around 7:20 (Monday) night, we received a couple of calls about a vehicle in a field," Deputy Chief Bob Pawlisz said. "When officers went over there, they found Mr. Fisk unconscious behind the wheel.

    "They contacted local paramedics in New Lenox, had him examined, and the officers had reason to believe he was under the influence. He was transported to the local hospital and charged with a lane violation, driving under the influence and illegal transportation of alcohol. An open container of alcohol was found in the vehicle."

    Pawlisz said a citation was issued, Fisk posted bond and was released. The 64-year-old Fisk is scheduled to appear in the Will County Courthouse on Nov. 29.

    Fisk broke into the majors with the Boston Red Sox in 1969 and played in Boston until 1980. He played in the 1975 World Series, and his arrest came one day after the 37th anniversary of his home run clinching Game 6 against the Cincinnati Reds, who won Game 7.

    He signed as a free agent with the Chicago White Sox in 1981, and he retired from baseball in 1993.

    Fisk was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000.

    I give a **** when it puts others and themselves in danger, which is what drinking and driving does.

    He probably put a dent in that farmer's harvest though.

    No excuse for drinking or driving, hope Fisk learns a lesson from this.
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.
