Baseball Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk’s Bradenton Home Robbed

The Associated Press

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Manatee County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating a break-in at the home of baseball Hall of Fame catcher Carlton “Pudge” Fisk.

Officials say thousands of dollars in collectible silver coins were stolen.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/UdSPl4) that it’s unclear exactly when Fisk’s home was burglarized. Detectives say Fiske was out of town when a pool serviceman arrived Thursday and noticed the break-in.

Investigators say it doesn’t appear anything else was stolen.

Fisk was a catcher for the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago White Sox for years, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000. His dramatic, often-replayed home run clinched Game 6 of the 1975 World Series for the Boston Red Sox against the Cincinnati Reds, although the Reds ultimately won the Series.
