One Pack. No Turning Back.
The one Hall of Famer in our pack, Carlton Fisk will forever be tied to one of the most iconic home runs in history, a blast immortalized in the movie Good Will Hunting and seared into the memory of every Red Sox fan who was conscious on October 21, 1975 when he teed off on the Reds' Pat Darcy and won Game 6 of the World Series. Fisk grew up in small town New Hampshire and went to catch more games than any other player in Major League history. He was enshrined in the Hall of Fame in 2000 with the following written on his plaque: "A commanding figure behind the plate for a record 24 seasons, he caught more games (2,226) and hit more home runs (351) than any catcher before him. His gritty resolve and competitive fire earned him the respect of teammates and opposing players alike."
