Carlton Fisk, C
Career: 1969-93, Red Sox, White Sox
Fun fact: 1972 ROY, 11-time All-Star
Immortalized by his dramatic, arm-waving home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series, "Pudge" amassed 2,356 hits in 2,499 games over 24 seasons -- 2,226 of them as a catcher. (Only Ivan Rodriguez logged more games behind home plate.)
Fisk was a fiery competitor. Just ask the Yankees, Deion Sanders or any player who attempted to run him over at the plate.
