This Week In Baseball History

Jan 20, 2022

Mays. Mantle. Snider. The 1950s were so awash in great center fielders, it's become fashionable to overlook Richie Ashburn, who was stuck on a bunch of bad teams despite being a truly deserving Hall of Famer. Sixty-two years ago this week, he was shipped from one cellar dweller to another when the Phils sent him to the Cubs. Mike and Bill talk about what made Ashburn so invisible and why he's still being underappreciated today. Plus, happy birthday to Carl Morton and Darrell Porter!
