Moore's father, Eugene Sr., pitched briefly for the Pirates (1909-10) and the Reds
(1912). Eugene Jr. became the Braves' regular right fielder in 1936 and led NL outfielders
with 32 assists. He hit .290 with 13 HR, 38 doubles, 91 runs, and 67 RBI in his rookie
season. He reached highs of 16 HR and 70 RBI in 1936, again leading the NL in assists.
His power dropped off thereafter, and he was never again an everyday player. He did
make the World Series
with the Browns in 1944, and scored the first run in Game One,
the only game they won.
