Sam McDowell, Bob Moose
My dad went to Central Catholic with the great Indians pitcher (and one time  Pirates pitcher) Sam McDowell (arrow). McDowell, one of the greatest Indians pitchers of all time, would have been a Hall of Famer if not for alcoholism. He came to Bethel Park High School to give a speech in 1982 that I attended
Joel Hanrahan, Bob Moose
Current Pirates pitcher Joel Hanrahan (21 saves as I write this!) and the late, great Pirates pitcher Bob Moose (1967-1976): they look alike to me! Moose was a 1971 World Series champion and pitched a no-hitter 9/20/69 (AND was the only pitcher to ever come close to pitching a no-hitter at old Forbes Field!). Born 10/9/76, died 10/9/76; also known for the wild pitch that cost us a trip to the 1972 World Series (Giusti gave up the tying HR). My first grade memories: THIS and Nixon getting re-elected LOL

Cincinnati, Oct. 11-His Wild Pitch Sank The Pirates – Bob Moose, pitching for the Pittsburgh Pirates in last half of ninth inning of final game against Cincinnati Reds, explains his wild pitch that permitted Reds to score and win National League pennant, 4-3, at Cincinnati Wednesday night. Moose said he didn’t want to throw Hal McRae a strike and the pitch “just took a bounce and bounced over his head” when he threw a slider.
