Richie Ashburn

1948 - 1962 (Center field)

2189 games, 29 home runs, .308 batting average

The only rookie to make the All Star team in 1948, Ashburn was named the Rookie of the Year and went on to become arguably the most beloved Phillie in history. One of the better lead off hitters in MLB, Ashburn led the NL in hitting two times: (.338 in 1955 and.350 in 1958); he hit .300 or better in nine of his 15 years in the majors and had an on-base percentage of .400 or more six times. He was enshrined in Baseball's Hall of Fame in 1995.
