hof finalST. JOHNSBURY- A former baseball player, and now, Boston Red Sox hall of famer, visited the town of St. Johnsbury over the weekend.  

Bernie Carbo, a former outfielder, who played with the Red Sox from 1974-78, put on a free batting clinic in St. Johnsbury for young baseball players in the area.  

One of his best moments in a Red Sox jersey was the three-run homerun he hit that tied the game in the 1975 world series. That hit paved the way for Carlton Fisks lengendary game-winning homerun in the bottom of the twelfth inning for a Red Sox 7-6 victory. 

One of the reasons for Carbo coming up here is his love for this area. "The colors are beautiful. It's just a beautiful place to be, I love it." Carbo says.

More importantly, he loves helping young children fulfill their dream of baseball and loves giving tips on how they can improve.

Carbo travels the country giving motivational speeches on faith based recovery and also works for several non-profit organzations.
