The Best Athlete From All 50 States

Vermont – Carlton Fisk – MLB

Carlton Fisk is one of the most offensively gifted catchers in the history of baseball. He’s second all-time in home runs for a catcher (351), and truly was proficient in hitting the ball to all parts of the field. In fact, one can make a case that Fisk is one of — if not the most well-rounded catcher of all-time.

The 11-time All-Star was born in Vermont — though grew up in the small town of Charlestown, New Hampshire. Interestingly enough, he was only born in Vermont because it held the closest hospital to his parents’ home in New Hampshire.
