Nickname was Fisk's first.....and Fisk didn't do roids
 
don't forget countless "vitamin B-12" injections from his good friends jose canseco and rafael palmeiro
 
Well, Carlton Fisk left baseball with that nickname a decade earlier.

I love how some of you just discount all amphetamines/greenies the old timers took...hilarious. Oh yeah sure they were just better athletes in the 50's...YAWN The ball is round, stop making excuses.

i cant believe it!!! I <3 HIM!!!! Best wishes for his new career!!!!
 
favorite player, kudos to his wonderful career.
 
I LOVE U PUDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
One of my personal favorite, but steroids?
 
I'm not any sort of a baseball fan but seeing him in Texas throw to second on base stealers was one of the more amazing things I've ever seen.

I hated that a lot of the Rangers at that time were using steroids but I don't understand how people can judge them in hindsight for doing it when it was obvious that the system encouraged it and rewarded it.

He is a good player I've never seem. It is a shame I do not have chances to see he playing.
 
How was he dirty? This guy did more for baseball than alot of people.
 
i agree the scandal did change his game
 
All said and done, a good player that was fun to watch. Thanks for the memories!
