Among the most consistent leadoff hitters in Major League history, Richie Ashburn was a solid center fielder and clutch hitter for the Philadelphia Phillies. Ashburn hit over .300 during nine of his 15 seasons, twice capturing the National League batting title, and he concluded his career with a .308 lifetime average. The five-time All-Star selection quickly moved to the broadcast booth following his playing days and called Phillies games for more than three decades.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is home to the greatest stars and the history of the game. Located in scenic Cooperstown, New York, the Hall of Fame is dedicated to preserving the sport's history, honoring excellence within the game, and connecting generations through baseball.
