Greatest White Sox Team of All-Time, Catchers-- Part 7: Herrmann and Fisk

From the August 21, 2016, Chicago Tribune.

ED HERRMANN--  An All-Star in 1974, Herrmann reached double digits in home runs five years in a row, including a career high 19 in 1970 when he played in just 96 games.

In 1972, he threw out 50 percent of would-be base stealers, the best success rate in the American League.

CARLTON FISK--  A 24-year big leaguer, Fisk played 13 of them with the White Sox.  he earned four All-Star berths with the Sox, and his 214 home runs in a Sox uniform are the fourth-most in team history.

Fisk's best season in Chicago came in 1985, when the Hall of Famer hit 37 homers, drove in 107 runs and stole 17 beases.

One of that great 1983 Sox team members.  It was "Pitch to Fisk at Your Risk."
