Between playing and managing, Pat Moran spent 23 years in the majors. All in all, he was a much better manager than a player. A decent catcher defensively, Moran was proficient at handling pitchers. His best offensive year was 1903, when he batted .262 and had 7 home runs, good for second in the league. As a manager, he had many winning seasons. He led the Phillies to the World Series in 1915, losing 4–1 to the Red Sox. In 1919 he managed the winning Reds in the infamous World Series against the Chicago “Black Sox.” After reporting to spring training in 1924, Moran became ill from Bright’s disease and passed away soon after, cutting short his successful career as an MLB manager.
