Whitey The Thief

Richie Ashburn Wheaties ad
General Mills (1949)
One of the greatest Phillies of all time was born 90 years ago today.  In his second year in baseball, the center fielder had his own Wheaties ad.  I love the visual of Ashburn stripping the first baseman and taking his uniform with him as he steals second base.
