Ron 'Moose' Allen Logs 353 Consecutive Games in Columbus MSBL


By Steve LaMontia, Director of Communications

Ron ‘Moose’ Allen is a 52 year old who plays for the Columbus Pirates in the 25-over division of the Columbus MSBL.  As if his ‘playing down’ 25 years isn’t impressive enough, the All-Star has accumulated a staggering 353 consecutive games in a row for the Pirates!  This amazing streak includes league and playoff games as well as any regional or Labor Day tournaments he plays with them.  "I began playing in the league with the Pirates in 2001 and have played 486 games,” explained Moose.  "I have been a high school head coach for 21 years and I have only had two conflicts that caused me to miss games.  Other than that I have made them all.”

Moose also finds time to play in the MSBL Disney Classic and Fall Classic, both in Florida.  When asked what his future plans are he responded, "This may be my last year with the 25-over division.  I think it’s time to move up.”

The current streak began in 2005 and keeps piling up every week. An eleven year span of never missing a game while nearing 400 games is a record that is in the Gehrig and Ripken rarified air of streaks.  "I have to drive over an hour to our games,” said the Pirates first baseman.  "I live in fear that Columbus traffic is what will end the streak!”  Moose summed up his philosophy and approach to the game of baseball and his team.  "I love playing the game of baseball.  I feel if you are going to be involved with a team, you should be dedicated to it.  It is hard to get people to be dedicated to anything today."  Lou, Cal and Moose.  It has a ring to it!
