Happy Birthday, Lloyd Moseby

Moseby.jpgHappy 50th Birthday to Lloyd Moseby, a long-time Blue Jays outfielder that joined the Tigers as a free agent for the 1990 and ‘91 seasons. (For what it’s worth, in 1990 he wore #17 and #15; in ’91 he stuck to #15.)

His best overall season was 1984: .280, 18 HR, 92 RBI and 15 triples. For the Tigers he simply kept centerfield warm for, ahem, Milt Cuyler.

The Portland, Ark. native hit .255 in two Detroit seasons with a total of 20 homers. He retired after the 1991 season at the surprisingly young age of 31.
