"Moose could flat-out hit ... for average, and he had real power. People used to look at our lineup and concentrate on the guys in the middle of the order. Moose might have been batting sixth or seventh, but he made our lineup deep and more dangerous. You didn't want to give him too much around the plate. He was like Yogi Berra , he could hit bad pitches out and beat you." - Teammate / Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle on MLB.com (Marty Noble, 04/27/2012, 'Skowron, part of Yankees powerhouses, dies', Source )
