In order for Carlton Fisk to hit his iconic extra-inning walk-off, Bernie Carbo had to tie the game in the bottom of the eighth with a pinch-hit three-run homer to deep left center. He was wasted at the time on some combination of pot, cocaine, crystal meth, alcohol, mescaline, pills--it's hard to say which.
