Check signed: "Richie Ashburn", 6x2¾. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1989 December 16. Check #3574, drawn on his personal account at Continental Bank, payable to "Readers' Digest" for $32.74. Entirely filled out by Ashburn. The ultimate singles hitter, Richie Ashburn (1927-1997) hit leadoff for 15 years, batting over .300 nine times, winning two batting titles and finishing second three times. He is also the most recent player to hit .300 in his last season; he batted .306 for the expansion Mets and was their only All-Star. He was a core player on the 1950 Philadelphia "Whiz Kids", who won the NL pennant on the last day of the season over the Dodgers. He became a Phillies broadcaster in 1963 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1995. Ashburn never played in Veterans Stadium, home to the Phillies from 1971 to 2003, but he spent every season in the broadcast booth there as TV announcer until his death (following a Mets-Phillies game in New York).
