“Moore (40-9) is always tough and it’s hard to get runs if you don’t get any hits.” – Keg Bar Manager Gary Betz

LA CROSSE, Wisc. – Question: How do you describe Bob Moore?

Answer: He’s the veteran ironman left-hander who throws no-hitters at his opponents.

Moore, a school teacher at Eau Claire North high school, pitched Eau Claire’s She-Nanigan’s to a 3-0 victory over the Keg Bar of La Crosse in the championship of the (1972) ninth annual La Crosse Invitational fastpitch softball tournament at Carroll Park last night.

And Moore was superb once again, tossing his second no-hitter in two weeks while facing the minimum number of Keg batters.

Moore lost his bid for a perfect game in the sixth inning when Keg left fielder Paul Dunham drew a walk on a three-two count.

A double play erased the mild threat, however.

Moore drew praise from both his manager Bill Roulette and from Keg field boss Gary Betz.

“Bob does everything,” said Roulette, whose club improved to 50-17. “He hits, pitches and does everything except drive the bus…and sometimes he does that.”
