Raymond Leroy Moore was an American right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Baltimore Orioles, Chicago White Sox, Washington Senators and Minnesota Twins from 1952 to 1963. A fastballing right-hander, Moore was nicknamed "Farmer" and "Old Blue". He was 6 ft 1 in tall and he weighed 205 pounds. Born in Meadows, Maryland, Moore was originally signed by the Dodgers in 1947. He spent a few years in the minors, and made his major league debut on August 1, 1952 at the age of 26. Moore, who today wouldn't be considered a "control specialist" as he walked as many as 112 batters in a season, was used both as a reliever and starter in his career, starting mostly during his time with the Orioles, to whom he'd been traded for Chico Garcia on October 8, 1954. He also started a large number of games one year with the White Sox. He was involved in a blockbuster deal when he was sent to the White Sox, being traded with Tito Francona and Billy Goodman for Hall of Famer Larry Doby, Jim Marshall, Russ Heman and Jack Harshman. Perhaps his best season as a starter was 1956, while with the Orioles. That year, Moore posted a 12–7 record with a 4.18 ERA.
