MLB Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk stepped up to the plate today ... pleading "guilty" to DUI after his arrest in an Illinois corn field back in October.

TMZ broke the story ... cops found Fisk passed out in the driver's seat of his F-150, which Fisk had plowed onto a New Lenox farm. Cops claim they also found an open bottle of vodka in the vehicle.

Fisk -- a first time offender -- pled guilty to misdemeanor DUI. He was sentenced to one year of court supervision and was ordered to pay $1,250 in fines.

Fisk's attorney believed they could have won the case, but said the MLB legend wanted to accept responsibility for what he did.

Let's hope "accepting responsibility" includes not drinking WHILE driving.

Let's see, cops found Fisk passed out in the driver's seat of his F-150, which Fisk had plowed onto a New Lenox farm. Cops claim they also found an open bottle of vodka in the vehicle.

And "Fisk's attorney believed they could have won the case."

He's still a disgrace. I'll honor someone for taking responsibility when they're completely caught regardless.

He would've "STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE" had he called a freakin' cab. Being so stinking drunk that he plowed into a cornfield was just sheer luck, he took out the scarecrow instead of someone's loved one. I have NO LOVE for any idiot that "TAKES RESPONSIBILITY" for dangerous actions.

Carlton Fisk plead guilty to a DUI after the cops found him passed out in his F-150. Mr. Fisk crashed into a structure, leaving his open bottle of booze in the truck with him. Luckily for him, no one was injured or killed. If they had been, he could be facing manslaughter charges. This is a classic example of why you should make arrangements to get home prior to a night of drinking.
