Remember, Swatters will win you the game. The game of beating people up that is.

Moe Cronin is a merchant who resides in the Swatters shack located in Diamond City market in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

Moe Cronin, a "baseball" enthusiast, sells customized baseball equipment and apparel for the sole purpose of killing. If spoken to, Moe tells the Sole Survivor what he believes baseball was - two teams armed with deadly modified baseball bats battling to the death. The baseball bats of the surviving winners of the game were called "Swatters" and therefore set the tradition of "next generation baseball." He also believes that baseballs were given to the children of dead players, baseball gloves were used to absorb bullets, and that baseball cards kept track of a player's kills.
