WGN-TV’s Bob Vorwald recounted some stories told to him by Moose Skowron, who died today at 81. Here’s one:â†µ
I went 0-for-40, then 1-for-20 right after that and somehow still finished the season hitting .319.â†µ
Skowron hit .319 in 1955, the only year he hit for exactly that average. His longest hitless streak that year was 0-for-15, in June. In September, he had a 3-for-25 stretch.
