A $750,000 fund-raising drive in conjunction with the Ed Block Courage Award Foundation was announced Monday to create a statue to honor Moore.
The do-it-all player was known for his equally varied nicknames, ranging from "Sputnik" to "Lightning Lenny." But to many who followed his career, he was simply known as "Spats."
"Well, I'm honored, you know, it's quite natural. I've heard about it for a while through different areas and it's very exciting," said Moore, who did not attend Monday's news conference, which coincided with his 80th birthday.
