It's been a month and a week since baseball immortal Carlton Fisk was allegedly found passed out behind the wheel of his pickup in a New Lenox cornfield, but the former Red and White Sox star has yet to make it into a Joliet courtroom.
Fisk was scheduled for a hearing Thursday morning but his drunken driving case postponed until Dec. 17.
Fisk's lawyer, Stephen White, is fighting to get his superstar client's driver's license back and to have evidence ejected from the case.
Fisk, 64, lost his license when he allegedly refused to take a breathalyzer test during his arrest Oct. 22 on charges of driving under the influence, improper lane usage and illegal transportation of alcohol.
White has also filed a motion claiming the New Lenox police illegally arrested Fisk since there was "no reasonable suspicion of criminal activity" to give them cause to pull him over in the first place.
Fisk is fourth on the White Sox's all-time home run list and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000. He owns homes in both New Lenox and Florida.
