William Bankhead Moskiman (December 20, 1879 - January 11, 1953) was a first baseman and right fielder in Major League Baseball who played briefly for the Boston Red Sox in its 1910 season. Listed at 6 ft 0 in (1.83 m), 170 lb. (77 kg), he batted and threw right-handed.
Born in Oakland, California, Moskiman attended Jefferson Grammar School for eight years, and graduated from Oakland High School. Afterwards, he was a medical student at Cooper Medical College but never truly became a doctor because he chose to play ball instead.
Moskiman spent parts of 13 seasons playing minor-league and independent-league ball, pitching more often than not and obtaining considerably good results in the California League, where he posted a 31-13 record in 1909 for the Oakland Commuters. Previously, he won 29 games for Oakland in 1901 and 22 for the Stockton Millers in 1908.
As a result, newspapers like the Los Angeles Times bestowed his degree on him in advance by frequently referring to him as 'Doctor Moskiman', or simply 'Doc', a nickname given to a player to be wise, e.g., Doc Moskiman, who gave far more analysis to his pitching than most other pitchers.
