Moose Stubing was born on Thursday, March 31, 1938, in Bronx, New York. Stubing was 29 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 14, 1967, with the California Angels. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Moose Stubing baseball stats page.
"The Brooklyn-born Moose is one of the most popular athletes in El Paso's (Sun Kings) sports history. So well liked by everyone in fact that Dave Garcia, former Sun Kings manager, suggested that he would make a good umpire because not even an irascible opposing manager could hate him." - El Paso Herald-Post (01/17/1970, 'Moose Hangs Em Up', Page 8)

Did you know that Moose Stubing had a street named in his honor? The El Paso Herald-Post (01/17/1970, Moose Hangs Em Up , Page 8) had the following anecdote about Moose, who once described himself as having a cup of coffee and a doughnut in the big leagues!
Moose might be the only El Paso (Sun King) athlete to ever have a street named after him, or rather a court. Among the honors he received on Stubing Day here was the official naming of Stubing Court.
Stubing was asked why he didn't live on Stubing Court.
"The reason," he said without a trace of a Brooklyn accent, "is the houses there are in the $40,000 class."
Moose Stubing | California Angels Manager | 1989 Topps (#444 | Checklist )
Moose Stubing appeared in exactly five Major League games, had exactly five at-bats, and was a pinch-hitter all five times. Cookie Rojas was the California Angels Manager in 1988, went 75-79, and was fired. Moose had managed three Triple-A teams so the Angels called on him to serve as interim skipper, but Stubing's Angels lost the remaining eight games of the season. When you combine that playing fact with the managing fact, Stubing becomes the only former Major League player and Major League manager who never registered a hit or a win.
Nearly thirty former major league players were sometimes called Moose, Big Moose, The Moose, etc., but only six were known almost exclusively (it was used as their first name) by that particular nickname; Moose Baxter (1906), Moose Clabaugh (1926), Moose McCormick (1904), Moose Solters (1934), Moose Stubing (1967) and Moose Haas (1976).
