On September 9, 1997 Philadelphia Phillies legend Richie Ashburn passed away at the age of 70. Ashburn was commonly referred to, and still is, as Whitey due to his blazing blonde hair. He was also known for his blazing speed, both on the base paths and in his center field position. Twelve of his fifteen seasons were played in a Phillies uniform. He was a six-time all star with a career batting average of .308, 2,574 hits and 586 RBIs. Ashburn's #1 was retired by the Phillies in 1979, he was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1995.
We could not think of a better way to honor Whitey, than by playing a video to his tribute narrarated by none other than his best friend, and fellow Philadelphia legend, Harry Kalas.
