His 31-game hitting streak in 1969 remains the longest by a Dodger.

BILL "MOOSE" SKOWRON
AS SEEN IN:
"Leo Durocher Meets Mr. Ed"
From Wikipedia: 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.
AS SEEN IN: 'The Beatles' 'The Simpsons' "Lisa The Vegetarian" TV DIMENSION: The Tooniverse O'BSERVATION: Despite the difference in animation style and in the voices (and in the number of finges!), these are both the "real" Paul McCartney for the animated TV dimension. BCnU!
As the Trickster once said, "Reality is boring, that's why I change it whenever I can."
I'm just "The Man Who Viewed Too Much", and "Inner Toob" is a blog exploring and celebrating the 'reality' of an alternate universe in which everything that ever happened on TV actually takes place.
Most of my theories about the TV Universe come from thinking inside the box and thus can't be proven. But I've never been one to shy away from a tall tale.....
Remember: "The more you watch, the more you've seen!"
