Richie Asburn has been one of the most underappreciated players of my time. A superb offensive player despite being just a singles hitter. When your hit .308 and your ISO is only .074 and you have a .396 OBP that's a good eye at the plate. He was the greatest ball hawk of his era (1948-1962). Seven times in that era he led the major leagues in put outs by an OFer.
Sadly he was lost in the shuffle of the monstrous NY trio of "Willie, Mickey, and the Duke".
