About the Book

Richie Ashburn: Why The Hall Not? is the story of beloved Philadelphia Phillies player and broadcaster Richie Ashburn and a young fan he befriended as a player. That fan remembered the kindness shown by Ashburn and led a drive – collecting almost 200,000 signatures – to have Major League Baseball reconsider Ashburn for the Hall of Fame. Ashburn was elected into the Hall and the once young fan was with him at Cooperstown during the induction ceremonies. Along the way the young fan became a close friend of Ashburn and the two shared meals and thoughts on baseball.
