I have grown to have tons of respect for Fisk over the years. I read an article in Baseball Digest several years back about how Fisk in his late 30's would go through intense workouts every day even after catching a DH. Bench will always be my all time favorite but he got by on incredible talent. Fisk also had great talent but he seemed to get by more so on grit, work and determination.
