CHICAGO (AP) - Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk has been charged with driving under the influence after he was found asleep in his pickup truck in an Illinois cornfield.

New Lenox police say officers found the 64-year-old Fisk asleep on Monday night behind the wheel of his truck and an open liquor bottle on the floor.

Pawlisz says Fisk was taken to Silver Cross Hospital for treatment. He was released from custody after posting bail and has a Nov. 29 court appearance.

Fisk's most famous baseball moment came in the 1975 World Series when his 12th-inning homer won Game 6 for Boston.

Fisk played 11 seasons with the Red Sox and 13 with the Chicago White Sox.

He has an unlisted number in New Lenox and couldn't be reached for comment.
