Primarily an outfielder, Moore could fill in anywhere, and even caught when necessary.
A steady performer with the Boston Braves, he reached highs of 135 games and a .302
batting average in 1933. A Texan, he made a fortune in the oil business after his
playing career ended and made wealthy men of former Braves teammates by tipping them
off to investments.
