Carbo was traded seven times in his 12-year career. His first stop was Cincinnati. In 1970, the Reds went to the World Series, where they lost in five games to the Orioles. Carbo had a dreadful postseason that year, going 0-14 in two rounds of playoffs. In 1974, he was traded to Boston, where he was a platoon player in the outfield. He didn't play in the 1975 ALCS, and in the 1975 World Series, he only reached the plate seven times. But he made the most of those at-bats, going 3-7 with a home run and two doubles. One of those home runs was in the 8th inning of Game 6, and tied the game at six apiece. Four innings later, Carlton Fisk would hit one of the most famous homers in World Series history, and the Red Sox would force a Game 7. They lost, but Bernie Carbo is still a legend in New England for his timely hitting. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo)
