Biographical Information[edit]

Terry Moore was a slick centerfielder who played his entire 11-year major league career with the St. Louis Cardinals and was named to four All-Star teams. He lost several years to World War II.

He joined the Gas House Gang in 1935, the year after they had won the 1934 World Series. He gradually took the center field job away from Ernie Orsatti, whose average dropped from .300 in 1934 to .240 in 1935.

Moore hit over .300 only once but had decent power for the times, finishing in the top ten in the league in homers or doubles several times. He also finished in the top ten in stolen bases several times during an era when anything over 10 often made you one of the leaders.

After his playing career ended, Moore was a St. Louis Cardinals coach from 1949 to 1952. He moved to the Philadelphia Phillies as a scout in 1953-1954 and managed the Phillies for the second half of the 1954 season. Moore then returned to the Cardinals coaching staff from 1956 to 1958.
