The 6'2" 200-lb University of Oklahoma graduate learned the knuckleball from Hoyt
Wilhelm, and in 1965 the two teamed in the Chicago bullpen that set a record with
53 saves. That year Fisher led AL pitchers with 82 relief appearances and 15 relief
wins, and saved 24, all career highs. He also pitched two shutout innings in the
All-Star Game. Fisher again led the AL with 67 appearances in 1966, but he split
the season between Chicago and Baltimore. Fisher had come to the White Sox in a 1961
trade that sent Billy Pierce and Don Larsen
to San Francisco.
Fisher was known
for his great Donald Duck impersonation.
