Dodgers History

Moose and Mister Ed

November 26, 1962 – The Dodgers trade pitcher Stan Williams to the New York Yankees in exchange for first baseman Bill “Moose” Skowron. The veteran will spend only one year in Los Angeles, but it was memorable as the Dodgers won the 1963 World Series and Skowron hit a home run in Game 2 at Yankee Stadium as Los Angeles completed a four-game sweep. Skowron also appeared with his teammates on a 1963 TV episode of “Mister Ed” filmed at Dodger Stadium. The talking-horse character tries out for the Dodgers, but doesn’t make the team, lamenting “they’ve got a Moose!”
