Fisk burst on scene by winning ’72 AL Rookie of the Year
“I was just hoping to complement the team with my defense and once in a while with my bat,” Fisk told United Press International. “I’m immensely happy to have contributed as much as I have to the club. At the beginning of the year, I felt that I may not make the club at all.”
Fisk was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2000.
