Casey’s Lager and Richie Ashburn

Beer Week rolls on.  We came across this somewhat ridiculous beer can featuring none other than Phillies great, Richie Ashburn.  As you can see, one side features a drawing of the center fielder, while the other quotes Ashburn on his self-described greatest moment: “The Throw.”  Released in 1980 by the Valley Forge Brewing Company, the Ashburn can was one of four that featured baseball Hall of Famers.  The others were Whitey Ford, Duke Snider and Negro League star Monte Irvin.
