I watched the Richie Ashburn DVD called A BASEBALL LIFE this weekend. It was great hearing Harry's voice and watching the old video clips of the Phillies. If you have never seen it, I highly recommend watching it.

Our man Dick Allen was in a couple of segments, including a pretty funny one in which a young (20+ years old) Dick Allen challenges a retired (40+ years old) Richie Ashburn to a race during spring training. Apparently Ashburn won.

There was also a section that focused on Ashburn's journalism career during which this 1975-76 photo is presented. I had never seen it before. Very cool.
