Quote of the Day- Carlton Fisk

Since the baseball pennant races are in full swing (no pun intended) here in America, we thought we'd quip some famous baseball all-stars of yesterday.

Carlton Fisk, 65,a catcher,  played his entire long career for just two teams, a rarity today, the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago White Sox.

He is perhaps best known for hitting a 12th inning grand slam home-run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series which the Red Sox ultimately lost to the Cincinnati Reds, a team which also boasted an all-star catcher in Johnny Bench.

Here is Fisk's quote:

"It's not what you achieve, it's what you overcome. That's what defines your career."
