Carlton Fisk One of the finest catchers in American League history, Carlton Fisk spent more years behind the plate (24) than any other A.L. receiver. The New England native also held at one time major league records for most home runs by a catcher (351), most stolen bases (128), and most games caught (2,226). Fisk remains one of only three catchers in baseball history to hit 300 home runs, score 1,000 runs, and drive in 1,000 runs, joining Johnny Bench and Yogi Berra.
