Joe spent one season in the Bridgeport outfield and 10 with the Giants, hitting .289, and playing in three World Series.  Moore played in six All-Star games and placed third in MVP voting in 1934.  Teammate Harry Danning recalled Moore as “A high class gentleman.  He was the type of  a guy, if the ball was hit out there, you knew he was going to catch it.  He never threw to a wrong base.  He was a good hitter. Joe was just an underrated ball player and I think deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.” (Baseball Collector, July 2000, p. 66.)
