Richardson to be guest speaker at Wild Game
Former New York Yankees second baseman Bobby Richardson will be the special guest speaker at the 16th annual Wild Game Supper.
Richardson spent 12 seasons with the Yankees (1955-66) and compiled a lifetime .266 batting average. Richardson won five Gold Gloves during his career. His most famous defensive play occurred on the final out of game seven in the 1962 World Series when he snared a vicious line drive off the bat of San Francisco Giants slugger Willie McCovey with the tying and winning runs on base.
Richardson was selected the 1960 World Series Most Valuable Player when he hit .367 with a grand slam and 12 RBIs. The Yankees lost the series to the Pittsburgh Pirates in seven games. Richardson is the only World Series MVP to come from a losing team.
Richardson, who was selected to seven American League All-Star teams, had another big postseason moment in the 1964 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals when he tied the World Series records for most hits in a series with 13.
After his playing career ended, Richardson entered the collegiate coaching ranks at the University of South Carolina. His best season at the school came in 1975 when he guided the Gamecocks to a 51-6 record and a berth in the College World Series championship game where South Carolina lost to Texas.
Richardson also had coaching stints at Coastal Carolina College and Liberty University. Richardson served as athletic director at Liberty and held that position until he stepped down in 1990.
Richardson is still an active member in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and served 10 years as the president of Baseball Chapel.
The Wild Game Supper will be Feb. 3 at the Brewton First Baptist Church. The meal will be at 5 p.m. followed by the program at 6:30 p.m. The program will feature a Big Buck contest. Tickets cost $3.
