Red Sox legend Carlton Fisk pleaded guilty Thursday in Joliet, Ill., to a misdemeanor charge of DUI and was sentenced to one year of court supervision plus a fine of $1,250 to cover court costs. He also must undergo a drug and alcohol evaluation and counseling.
Fisk, 64, was arrested after being found asleep in his pickup truck in a suburban Chicago cornfield on Oct. 22 with an open bottle of vodka on the floor.
The Hall of Fame catcher split his career with the Red Sox (1969, '71-80) and White Sox ('81-93). He is best remembered for his Game 6-winning home run in the 1975 World Series at Fenway Park.
It's been a tough month for Fisk, whose Florida home was burglarized last week, with thousands of dollars in collectable silver coins stolen.
