http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp... Richie Ashburn is arguably the most beloved figure in the long and storied history of Philadelphia sports. He thrilled fans for over a decade with his exploits on the baseball diamond, then spent the rest of his life entertaining generations of Phillies fans from the broadcast booth. His Midwestern wit and dry sense of humor seemed to be in sharp contrast with the gritty atmosphere of East Coast baseball, but "Whitey" won over this tough town with his straightforward approach and playful charm. Richie Ashburn: A Baseball Life chronicles an amazing journey that takes us from his humble beginnings in Nebraska all the way to his enshrinement in the halls of baseball immortality at Cooperstown, New York. It's a story told by his family and friends, teammates and colleagues, and by Richie himself in the form of archive interviews, broadcasts and rare Ashburn home movies. It's all lovingly narrated by his best friend and broadcast partner, fellow Hall of Famer Harry Kalas.
