I think you should accept two answers for 'Moose' 1) Mike Mussina 2) William Joseph "Moose" Skowron or Bill Skowron Both went by the nickname 'Moose' and played for the Yankees. Look it up online if you want to check me, but being a big Yankees fan, I would like it if you could put up Mr. Skowron.

As a lifelong Yankee fan, I was surprised to see that Thurman Munson was referred to a s "Tugboat or Walrus". I have never heard of these nicknames. I guessed that Sparky Lyle might be called Walrus for his facial hair!

Moose WAS Bill Skowron---period. And no Goose Gossage, Phil "Scooter" Rizzuto, Charlie "King Kong" Keller, Allie "Chief" Reynolds, ...? Presumably quiz created by someone <40...
