1976 Hostess #64 - Carlton Fisk

  • Carlton Fisk was struggling with injuries during this time in his career
  • Fisk was hitting well, but had a hard time staying in the lineup
  • In 1974 Carlton took a foul ball in a sensitive place and missed the first three weeks of the season. Fisk  went down in late June with a knee injury sustained while blocking the plate. The injury required surgery and Fisk was out for the season
  • Carlton broke his elbow during spring training in 1975 and didn't play until June 23
  • Fisk was an AL All Star in 1972, 1973, and 1974 -- he didn't play in '74 due to the knee injury
  • AL Rookie of the Year in 1972
  • Before peak, peak, or after peak? before peak
