Fisk changed his “Sox,” joining the Chicago White Sox for the second half of his career. Despite several injuries which plagued the 11-time All Star, Fisk still set the record for home runs by a catcher, with 351. Since his retirement in 1993, Fisk has continued to achieve success. In 2000, he became the 13th catcher ever voted into the Hall of Fame. On June 13, 2005, the Boston Red Sox honored Fisk and the famous 12th-inning home run that won game six of the 1975 World Series by naming Fenway Park’s left foul pole where it landed the "Fisk Pole." Fisk’s relentless determination and unmatched achievements make him one of baseball’s greatest heroes.
