75MLBFisk Waves It Fair
Date / Aug 21, 1975
Location / Fenway Park | Boston, Mass.
Moment / Tied 6–6 in the bottom of the 12th inning of Game 6 of the 1975 World Series, Carlton Fisk hit a high shot that hit the left foul pole at Fenway Park. While the ball was in the air, he waved the ball fair with his hands, hoping it wouldn’t go foul. The walk-off home run sent the series to Game 7 and staved off Boston’s elimination.
Impact / The game was one of the highlights in Fisk’s Hall of Fame career, despite the fact that the Red Sox lost Game 7 to the Cincinnati Reds in the next game. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000 after hitting 376 career home runs and 1,330 RBIs as a catcher during his 24-year career.
