BILL "MOOSE" SKOWRON
AS SEEN IN:
"Leo Durocher Meets Mr. Ed"
William Joseph "Moose" Skowron Jr. (December 18, 1930 – April 27, 2012) was a Major League Baseball player, primarily a first baseman for the New York Yankees. After retirement, he was a Community Relations Representative for the White Sox.
On November 26, 1962, he was traded by the Yankees to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Stan Williams. He kept his Yankee uniform number, 14, on the Dodgers. Although Skowron floundered against National League pitching, batting just .203 in 237 at bats with four home runs, he stunned his former team in the 1963 World Series, as he led the Dodgers with a .385 average and a home run, as Los Angeles swept New York in four straight games.
