Statement from Governor Pat Quinn on Bill “Moose” Skowron

CHICAGO – April 27, 2012. Governor Pat Quinn today issued a statement on the passing of Major League Baseball legend Bill “Moose” Skowron, an Illinois-native who won five world championships with the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers before joining the Chicago White Sox as a player and later in their community relations office.

“Moose was one of baseball’s all-time greatest clutch performers, but he was also a good man who loved and respected the game. I had the honor of getting to know him in his later years, and his passion for sports and his love for his family never wavered. My thoughts are with his wife Lorraine and his loved ones. He was truly one of a kind.”
