Former White Sox catcher Carlton Fisk was arrested in New Lenox, Ill. on Monday evening

One time White Sox and Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk was found in his car, in a field, in New Lenox, Ill. on Monday evening. Fisk was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, as well as a lane violation and illegal transportation of alcohol.

Fisk, 64, posted bond and gained his release. He will appear in the Will County Courthouse on Nov. 29.

The arrest occurred 37 years and one day after Fisk's famous home run to win Game 6 of the 1975 World Series for the Red Sox, extending the Series to a Game 7 which Boston lost to the Cincinnati Reds.

Fisk played 13 seasons with the White Sox after signing a free-agent deal in 1981. In a 24-year career, Fisk made all but 72 of his 2,226 game appearances at catcher, while hitting 376 home runs and 421 doubles.

Fisk was inducted into Cooperstown in 2000.
