In addition to his Game 7 feats, Skowron had an RBI single in the 10th inning of Game 6 in 1958 that gave the Yankees a two-run lead and they held on to beat the Braves 4-3.

Moose will always be remembered as being one of the key members of the Yankees‘ dynasties in the 50’s and early 60’s,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said. “He was a winner in every sense of the word, and someone the Yankees family cared deeply for.”

He is survived by wife Lorraine (nicknamed Cookie), daughter Lynnette, sons Greg and Steve, brother Edward and four grandchildren. A wake will be held Monday at Colonial-Wojciechowski Funeral Home in Niles, Ill., and a funeral the following day at Queen of All Saints Basilica in Chicago.
