(WSCR) Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge Thursday morning after mixing alcohol and prescription drugs and driving into a New Lenox farm field in October.

The former White Sox star will serve one year of court supervision and must pay court costs of $1,250 — the standard disposition for 1st-time DUI offenders in Will County.

According to a report, Fisk’s attorney, Stephen White, said in court of his client: “He stepped up to the plate and said, ‘I want to accept responsibility for what I did.’ I admire that.”

Fisk will also undergo a drug and alcohol evaluation, counseling and must attend a victim impact panel.
