Fisk: Kiss This Game Goodbye.
“In a lot of ways, the game has been taken away from pitchers and catchers, and even from a young age,’’ he said. “Pitches are called from the dugout, even in high school. When a game is on the line, there’s no reservoir of experience. And the game has been taken away from the teams by some of the rules that have been put in. You have umpires who don’t follow pitchers around, and as a result, they don’t have a handle on the emotional highway of the game. You have to have a feel for that part of the game.’’
Fisk will be among the former Sox players who will join current players Monday for the team’s annual celebrity bowling event to benefit pediatric-cancer research and treatment programs at Children’s Memorial Hospital and the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital.
“It’s always fun because you get away from the game with your family and mingle with the fans and kind of get feedback from them,’’ he said. “It’s almost like a date night with my wife. It’s for a great cause — and it gets kind of competitive, too.’’
