Biographical Information[edit]

Barry Moore pitched six seasons in the majors, appearing in 140 games. Although he spent five of the six seasons with the Washington Senators, he appeared in the most games (37) in his last season, 1970, split between the Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians. Barry also pitched nine seasons in the minors, including three years with York.

He pitched the only complete game shutout of his career on April 30, 1967 as a member of the Senators against the Minnesota Twins. He pitched a one-hitter walking 2 and striking out none. The only hit was a 6th-inning single by Cesar Tovar.

On June 16, 1961, pitching for his Rowan County, NC American Legion team against Concord, NC, Moore struck out 24 batters, including the last 18 outs of the game. He pitched a no-hitter later that same season, against Thomasville, NC in the Legion playoffs.

Moore was the first major leaguer out of Pfeiffer University, where he attended at the same time as Billy Wynne.
