Bob Moose: Wikipedia

Robert (Bob) Ralph Moose Jr. (October 9, 1947 – October 9, 1976) was a Major League Baseball pitcher from 1967 to 1976. Moose spent his entire career with the Pittsburgh Pirates. His best season came in 1969 when he posted a 14–3 won-loss record and a 2.91 Earned Run Average working equally as a starter and reliever. On September 20 of that year, he no-hit the eventual World Series champion New York Mets. He is also known for his wild pitch in the bottom half of the ninth inning which allowed George Foster to score the winning run in the fifth and deciding game of the 1972 NLCS, sending the Cincinnati Reds to the World Series after Pittsburgh had a one-run lead entering the bottom of the ninth, in the final game of Roberto Clemente's career. During the 1974 season, Moose suffered a blood clot under the shoulder of his pitching arm. Surgery was required to remove the clot plus one of Moose's ribs.[1] Moose was killed in an auto accident heading to Bill Mazeroski's golf course near Martins Ferry, Ohio, on his 29th birthday Pitcher Born: October 9, 1947(1947-10-09) Export, Pennsylvania Died: October 9, 1976(1976-10-09) (aged 29) Martins Ferry, Ohio Batted: Right Threw: Right MLB debut September 19, 1967 for the Pittsburgh Pirates Last MLB appearance September 25, 1976 for the Pittsburgh Pirates Career statistics Win–loss record 76–71 Earned run average 3.50 Strikeouts 827 Teams Pittsburgh Pirates (1967–1976) Career highlights and awards World Series champion (1971) pitched a no-hitter on September 20, 1969 ----- Pittsburgh Pirates 1971 World Series Champions 2 Jackie Hernández ·4 Charlie Sands ·7 Bob Robertson ·8 Willie Stargell ·9 Bill Mazeroski ·11 José Pagán ·14 Gene Alley ·15 Gene Clines ·16 Al Oliver ·17 Dock Ellis ·18 Vic Davalillo ·20 Richie Hebner ·21 Roberto Clemente (World Series MVP) ·23 Luke Walker ·25 Bruce Kison ·27 Bob Johnson ·28 Steve Blass ·29 Milt May ·30 Dave Cash ·31 Dave Giusti ·32 Bob Miller ·34 Nelson Briles ·35 Manny Sanguillén ·38 Bob Moose ·39 Bob Veale Manager:40 Danny Murtaugh Coaches:5 Dave Ricketts ·41 Bill Virdon ·42 Don Osborn ·43 Don Leppert ·44 Frank Oceak ----------------
