Following the '58 season, my dad took me (9 years old) to a father-son event at our temple in my hometown (Norfolk). Moose Skowron was the guest speaker. He showed film clips of the '58 WS and gave away signed baseballs. As a Yankee fan, who had never seen a major leaguer in person, it was a wonderful experience that remains with me to this day.

That's a great story Mark. Here's something from back in '58.

Moose was a very nice man. I met him several times and was never disappointed. RIP Moose.

He signed this for me TTM last year to complete it. Great guy!

Moose must have done a lot of speaking over the years. In the early 80's he came and talked my little league end of season dinner. I was a fan from that moment on. I met him a few more times over the years. Here are two cards I had him sign in January of 2011.
He was a great guy and had a lot of great stories!! He will be missed.
