NEW YORK (WFAN) – Yankees great Bill ‘Moose’ Skowron, the hero of the Bombers’1958 World Series team, died on Thursday night after battling lung cancer. He was 81.
The slugger appeared in a remarkable eight World Series in total, and it was on that stage where he did his most damage. The Chicago native boasted a .293 average with eight homers and 29 RBIs in 39 Fall Classic games.
Skowron played for five teams in a career that spanned 13 years. He retired with a .282 lifetime average, 211 home runs and 888 RBIs.
