Career highlights and awards

Robert (Bob) Ralph Moose Jr. (October 9, 1947 – October 9, 1976) was a 1972 NLCS, sending the Cincinnati Reds to the World Series after Pittsburgh had a one-run lead entering the bottom of the ninth.[2]

During the 1974 season, Moose suffered a blood clot under the shoulder of his pitching arm. Surgery was required to remove the clot plus one of Moose's ribs.[3]

Moose was killed in an auto accident heading to Bill Mazeroski's golf course near Martins Ferry, Ohio, on his 29th birthday.[4]
