Bernie Carbo is a name that will forever live in Boston Red Sox lore. He has shared his interesting career story in the 2013 book, "Saving Bernie Carbo."
On July 26th, Carbo will be joined by his co-author Dr. Peter Hantzis to talk about the book at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Their visit takes place at 1 p.m. at the Bullpen Theater as part of the Cooperstown Author Series.
Following the discussion, there will be a book signing in the Library Atrium. Admission for the Author Series is included in the price of admission for the Hall of Fame.
The most memorable moment of Carbo's career came in Game 6 of the World Series. He hit a game-tying three-run home run that paved the way for Carlton Fisk's historic game-winner in the twelfth.
Carbo spent parts of five seasons with the Red Sox in the prime of his career. He was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in 1965 and made his big league debut in 1969.
As a rookie in 1970, Carbo hit .310 with 24 home runs and 63 RBI. He finished second in American League Rookie of the Year voting.
Carbo also spent time with the St. Louis Cardinals, Milwaukee Brewers, Cleveland Indians and Pittsburgh Pirates in his 12-year career. He was inducted into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2004.
