It’s unfortunate to say we have some more sad news in the baseball world this weekend.
Dodgers and Cardinals nation lost a longtime player and supporter Saturday morning.
Former All-Star Wally Moon has passed away at the age of 87.
Moon was part of the building of baseball in Los Angeles during his time with the Dodgers.
Wally Moon enjoyed a 12-year career in the MLB spanning over the ’50s and ’60s. In that time he managed a .289 career batting average. He also was named Rookie of the Year in 1954 and appeared in two All-Star games.
He also led the league in triples (11) in 1959 and then led the league in on-base percentage (.434) in 1961.
The Dodgers weren’t the only ones to share condolences in the wake of Moon’s passing. His alma mater Texas A&M shared their love.
