While Peter Fisher starred in
multiple sports, it was his exploits on the baseball diamond that
carried him beyond Stoneham High School.
The 1995 graduate was a
tri-captain of the 1994 football team that won the Middlesex League
Championship and State Championship that went 7-4 overall with Fisher
being selected as a Boston Globe and Herald All Scholastic.
In his senior year he was named
Middlesex League MVP. In baseball he made an impact in his sophomore
year while the Spartans went 20-0. They became Middlesex League
Champions and Fisher was named to the All-League Team for his 5-1 record
on the mound with a 0.67 ERA.
During his junior year he was a
member of the Eastern Mass. Division II North Champions and went 9-1 on
the hill with a 0.71 ERA, coming within one strike of throwing a
no-hitter against Saugus, while striking out 17.
Showing a powerful bat his
senior season with a .467 batting average with 27 RBI’s, he pitched a
complete game victory over Swampscott, a four-hitter with 14 K’s. That
season ended with the Spartans becoming State Champions and Peter again
named as a Globe and Herald All Scholastic. He finished his Stoneham
High School career with a 26-3 record with over 200 strikeouts.
As Coach Seabury said, “He had
to deal with the pressure of the pro scouts watching him in every game
he pitched this season.” After graduating Fisher went to the University
of Maine and then the University of Alabama where he pitched in the
College World Series.
Drafted by the New York Yankees
in 1995 and the Minnesota Twins in 1998, Peter finished his pro career
in the Boston Red Sox organization before returning to college at
Florida Atlantic University.
He is currently a third year law
student at Northeastern University School of Law and resides in
