Richie Ashburn Baseball HOF Stats Bat
Don Richard Ashburn
Inducted to the Hall of Fame in: 1995
Primary team: Philadelphia Phillies
Primary position: Center Fielder

A fleet-footed baseball player that used his athletic gifts to get on base and chase down fly balls on the field. Then a broadcaster that used his oratory skills to become a much beloved voice off the field. Richie Ashburn would become a fixture on the Philadelphia sports scene for a half century.

Because he played in an era that featured such stalwart center fielders as Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Duke Snider, Ashburn was sometimes overlooked by fans. During a 15-year big league career, the lefty swinging Ashburn twice won the National League batting title, finished second three times, and nine times batted over .300. A lifetime .308 hitter, his 1,198 walks and 2,574 hits helped him finish with a .397 on-base percentage. (Biography from baseballhall.org)
