Flowers left for Bill Skowron
I was saddened to hear about your passing.I grew up watching the 1961 Yankees and they are still my only collecting interest.I have a signed baseball from Moose and also one of his game used bats.He was my hero and I was always in awe every time that I met him.He was a true professional in every sense of the word.He had 165 HR's as a Yankee and appeared in 7 World Series in his 9 years in pinstripes.He hit over .300 5 times and homered 2 times in a game for the Yanks 12 times.He had 5 hits in a game on 9/21/56 and on 7/28/56,he drove in 7 runs in a game.He told me once about cussing after an at bat and as he went down the length of the dugout,he was still cussing until he passed Bobby Richardson and he said "Sorry,Bobby" then began the tirade again.RIP # 14,you will always be with us in memory.
