Jeter mourns Moose

4/27/2012

Derek Jeter mourned Moose Skowron, who died today at 81.

"I got to know Moose really well," Jeter said. "That's too bad. Moose is one of the guys you always looked forward to seeing. Whether it was here, Old Timers Day, in Chicago, he used to always come out when we played in Chicago. I enjoyed getting to know him throughout the years."

What did you talk to Moose about?

"He always had positive things to say," Jeter said. "He would always come over and comment on how you are playing or how things will turn around. He was just always positive. He is one of the guys you looked forward to seeing."
