It took me a while to come up with the name... but it finally came  to me... Moose Stubing!!!

 

I'm pretty sure I saw him referee some Long Beach State basketball games back in the day.

RE: Guess who? Game 


I'm going to assume I got that one and will throw out the next player...

 

I played two years for the Angels and later ended my career with the team I originally started with...

Bingo BBSteve. Good memory. Moose did division 1 basketball from at least from the late 70's until 2001. Couldn't find anything on when he actually started  or retired from basketball.

 

Moose was hired by the Nationals as a "special assistant" to Jim Bowden in 2006 (after being let go by the ANgels) . Moose was a player, a hitting coach, a 3rd base coach, a scout, and a short term manager for the Angels. Moose is 79 now, and with Bowden gone, his baseball career may be over. Last I heard, he lived in Wickenburg, Arizona and was still making it over to Arizona Fall League games.

 

Moose was quite a character, on and off the fields and arenas. I remember during Spring Training in Palm Springs....back in the day....and we would go over to the auxiliary field with our lawn chairs where Moose would be running some lame bunting drill for the pitchers....and Jimmie Reese would be feeding balls (and sometimes bats!)  into the spinning pitching machine. We would actually sit inside the fence just outside the 1b dugout. Moose would always carry on some banter with us. During breaks he'd come over and sometimes begin regaling us with stories of him and the legendary Irv Brown (basketball official), meeting women in bars and telling tales that they were sheepherders from Australia and the like. Of course, my friends and I were in our teens and thought he was hilarious.

 

Couldn't find a picture of Moose in his referee garb....but did find him in a feature article of Referee magazine.

 

 

That's Moose up in the right corner with a brew in his hand. And the feature article is along the top-

 

"Share a Cold One with Moose Stubing"

 

Too funny.

 

More trivia- Bruce Benedict and Moose Stubing are the only MLB players to ref NCAA Division 1 basketball....I'm pretty sure.

 

OK, back to BBSteve's clue!

Good stuff TRrrr... I bet those stories he told at spring training were priceless.

 

 

Next clue:

 

I was a switch hitter.

Switch hitting Angels....Chilli Davis is always the first one that comes to mind....but it's not him....2nd would be the post-season clutch Scott Spiezio...but he doesn't fit the bill either.....hmmmm

during my career, I played for seven different teams... although I played less than ten games for two of those teams.

I'll have a stab in the dark.

Chad Kreuter

 

Edit: Actually, I'll change that to a guy who made it to the MLB All-Star game; Dave Hollins.

RE: Guess who? Game 


I was going to guess Phillips but he played for six teams (Oakland twice). He never played for one team less than 10 games let alone two.

Chad Kreuter played for seven teams and in two of those seasons played less than ten games. (Both at Texas but at different stints with the team)

Dave Hollins played for seven teams and for two of those teams (Boston in 1995 - 5 games; Cleveland in 2001 - 2 games).played less than ten games.

All played two seasons with the Angels.

Fishing with no pole.......Brian Fuentes?

 

I was going to go with everyone's whipping boy, Esteban Yan. But looked it up and he actually won 2 games. One for each of his 2 Angel seasons. Ugh!

I didn't detect your accent at all....you grew up in Saux territory?

 

Jeff Juden?

 

Massuchusetts Gatorade Player of the Year 1988-89.

 

He played SS in high school at 6' 8" ?!?!?

 

He went 1-3 in his abbreviated stint with the Halos in 1998.

 

Or maybe I'm incorrect.

Oh...excellent ytoojae.

 

He actually won the Gatorade High school player of the year twice (is he the only one?)......in the state of Maryland.

 

Easy to forget that he won his 3rd start in his ill-advised (IMO) call-up in May, 2008.

 

And that he didn't get the win in his excellent lone 2009 start.

 

I think it is Nick Adenhart .... R.I.P.

New player.

 

My first major league hit (and first hit as an Angel) was a walk-off Home Run.

2nd clue.

 

I scored 3 runs as an Angel before I ever made a plate appearance.
