Moore was a good contact hitter with little power who backed up Darrell Porter
catcher for the Brewers for three seasons, then started from 1977 to 1980 before
being forced back to the bench by the acquisition of Ted Simmons
in 1981. In 1982
the strong-armed Moore shifted to right field, where he led AL outfielders with six
double plays, and he remained there until 1985, when he moved back behind the plate.
Moore hit .300 in 1979 and .301 in 1981 (in only 48 games), but usually batted near
the bottom of the order, and never drove in more than 49 runs in a season.
