I have really grown to admire Fisk. His run in with Deion Sanders late in his career over hustling out a fly ball was something i first admird about him. Then late in his career when his body seemed to be breaking down he hired a personal trainer that put him through daily intense work outs, even during the season. Fisk commented these workouts extended his career for 5 or so years.
