Philadelphia Mayor. A coal dealer and later coroner, Ashbridge was elected Mayor of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1898 with over eighty percent of the vote. During his tenure, he proposed the building of the Theodore Roosevelt Boulevard, which is a major artery through north and northeast Philadelphia. He also threw out the ceremonial first pitch of the first professional baseball game played at Columbia Park. The game was played on April 26, 1901 and was between the Philadelphia Athletics and the Washington Senators. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
