"I have a 'P' in the middle of my chest. I touched Richie Ashburn. I played behind Robin Roberts and Jim Bunning. I knew Steve Carlton and Mike Schmidt. Was there at the beginnings of Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins. I would very much like to be buried with the Phillies uniform," Ruben Amaro Sr. told Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Phil Sheriden in a 2009 interview. Amaro Sr. died on Friday at the age of 81, just over one week after former teammate and colleague Dallas Green passed away.
