Moose Skowron


A short bio from the Helmar “This Great Game” card back: The Chicago native is a chip off the old block. His father, William Sr. was a professional ballplayer in the Chicago Mid-West League for 18 seasons. Moose has grown to be much larger than his dad, and he socks a lot of punch in his big arms. Baseball wasn’t Skowron’s only diversion as a youth: he was a marbles, table tennis, and wrestling champ in his school as well. Moose stills likes to wrestle some of his teammates for fun in the Yankee clubhouse. In his first tryout with the Bombers, Skowron was invited to hop into the batting cage by Joe DiMaggio, who watched the tall, strapping boy his two homers into the upper deck at Comiskey Park. The Yankees got Moose’s hoof print on a contract soon after that.
