Bill “Moose” Skowron Passes Away at 81 from Congestive Heart Failure

"Moose" Skowron, a Yankee fan favorite and constant in the great Yankee teams of the 1950s and '60s, passed away early Friday morning.

He had been battling lung cancer for several years, and unfortunately passed due to congestive heart failure. He was 81 years old.
