Carlton Fisk signed with the Chicago White Sox on March 18, of 1981 after spending the first 11 years of his major league career with the Boston Red Sox. Fisk spent 13 years on the south side, amassing 214 home runs, 762 RBI, 1,259 hits, and a .257 BA over a span of 1,421 games. Fisk appeared in four Major League Baseball All-Star games, and won the Silver Slugger Award three times while playing for the White Sox. He also finished third in the American League’s Most Valuable Player voting in 1983. Fisk ended his marvelous career after the 1993 season, and seven years later in 2000 the 11 time All-Star was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Despite playing two more years in Chicago than he did in Boston, Fisk elected to be enshrined into Cooperstown wearing a Red Sox cap.

Runner-up – A.J. Pierzynski (2005-2012)
