Pawlisz said 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 became a part of an unforgettable baseball moment while playing for the Boston Red Sox when he belted a 12th-inning home run that won Game 6 of the 1975 World Series.

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