RIP - Bill "Moose" Skowron

Former Yankees and White Sox slugger Moose Skowron passed away yesterday at age 81, from lung cancer.

Skowron was the Yankees' regular 1st baseman from 1955-1962. During that 8-year stretch, the Yankees won 4 World Series titles. Skowron was the Yankees #3 power threat, after Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris.

Moose also won another World Series with the Dodgers in 1963. He later played for the White Sox from 1964-67, and finished the 1967 season (his last) with the Angels.
