Eric Bruntlett (and that unassisted triple-play!)
Richie Ashburn of the Phillies is pictured tagged out at home plate on an attempted steal of home as Cubs catcher Sammy Taylor makes the tag while team mate Solly Hemus jumps out of the way and Umpire Bill Jackowski watches the play.
Yes, #4 always makes me remember Solly Hemus. I loved a LH hitting second baseman and remember seeing him play in person at CMS.
Happy Rich Ashburn Day!
HAPPY AL OLIVER DAY!!!!!!!!
It's the first day of Spring Training, it's ok to smile, Al!
Whew, done with this thread! I hope you all enjoyed!
Another great Countdown thread, thanks!
Yes, thanks Philsmania (and others). Lots of good memories.
Hard to believe that the games are only a week away! Play ball!
I love this thread every year. I live in the Chicago area. As a kid, I was only able to follow the team through box scores in the newspaper. It's cool to see faces that go along with the names I could only read about . Thanks to all who posted something.
