|Career highlights and awards|
Walter Joseph "Moose" Moryn (April 12, 1926 – July 21, 1996) was an American Major League Baseball outfielder. A native of St. Paul, Minnesota, Moryn played in the majors from 1954 through 1961 for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, and Pittsburgh Pirates.
Moryn's career highlight was a dramatic shoe-string catch on the last out of the May 15, 1960 no-hitter by Don Cardwell of the Cubs. Cardwell's gem came in his Cubs debut after being acquired in a trade. Moryn himself was traded exactly a month later, at the trading deadline, when he was sent to the Cardinals.
