    The article on Carlton Fisk’s bat brought back memories of a trip to Fenway in 1972. We arrived early to get autographs – those were the days when players readily signed autograpghs, would give batting tips to kids, and worked off season jobs in preparation for life after baseball. I came home with a baseball covered with autograpghs – Bill Lee, Rico Peteocelli, Lee Stange, Bob Montgomery, Ray Culp , and a kid from New Hampshiere by the name of Carlton Fisk. That ball would go on to see action in a few sand lot games but 40 years later is proudly displayed in my foyer. Glad to hear that Carlton Fisk still seems like a regular kid from Vermont/New Hampshire. No surprise though.
