Inhaltsangabe:

Carlton Fisk retired having played in more games and hit more home runs than any other catcher before him. A baseball superstar in the 1970s and 80s, Fisk was known not just for his dedication to the sport and tremendous plays but for the respect with which he treated the game.

A homegrown icon, Fisk rapidly became the face of one of the most storied teams in baseball, the Boston Red Sox of the 1970s. As a rookie making only $12,000 a year, he became the first player to unanimously win the American League Rookie of the Year award in 1972, upping both his pay grade and national recognition. Fisk's game-winning home run in Game Six of the hotly-contested 1975 World Series forever immortalized him in one of the sport's most exciting televised moments. Fisk played through an epic period of player-owner relations, including the dawn of free agency, strikes, and collusions. After leaving Boston under controversy in 1981, he joined the Chicago White Sox, where he played for 12 more major league seasons, solidifying his position as one of the best catchers of all time.

Doug Wilson, finalist for both the Casey Award and Seymour Medal for his previous baseball biographies, uses his own extensive research and interviews with childhood friends and major league teammates to examine the life and career of a leader who followed a strict code and played with fierce determination.

Rezension:

You don't have to go through Carlton Fisk's famous Fenway Park foul-pole theatrics when you read Doug Wilson's biography. This is a home run all the way, a straight-ahead blast that travels from New Hampshire (of all places) across a stormy 24-year major-league career and lands in Cooperstown. Read it and enjoy. "Leigh Montville, NYT bestselling author of The Big Bam and Ted Williams: The Biography of an American Hero"

Carlton Fisk was the best catcher in Red Sox history both offensively and defensively. He was also a great teammate who loved the game. Wilson's book is terrific. It brought back many memories of Pudge as a teammate on and off the field and has so many different accounts of his life growing up in New Hampshire and his years with the White Sox. Just a great job. "Rico Petrocelli, former Red Sox great"

Wilson received much-deserved praise for his biographies of Mark Fidrych and Brooks Robinson. This fine book is every bit their equal. "Booklist, starred review"

A well-researched account of a legendary ball player. "Library Journal"

Wilson delivers a solid look at the prodigious career of one the finest baseball players of the '70s. "Publishers Weekly"

"This comprehensive biography takes a look at his full body of work playing the most physically demanding position in the game and in the process earning selection as both a unanimous Rookie of the Year in 1972 and a Hall of Famer in 2000." - "The Christian Science Monitor""
