Greg White recently visited the Bush Mountain Community to look at the marker for Mr. Moore and the Atlanta Black Crackers. As one of the signs says, “This practice field may be the last tangible evidence of this facet of baseball history.”

 


The late James “Red” Moore and Atlanta Black Crackers are recognized with this historical marker (installed January 10, 2017) in the Bush Mountain community. Mr. Moore’s legacy continues to live.


The James Red Moore legacy continues!  “Stories of Atlanta,” produced by the Atlanta History Center, features Mr. Moore and his community of Bush Mountain in west Atlanta.

Mr. Moore received a nice letter honoring his 99th birthday from President Obama and Michelle Obama. It meant a lot, especially after their face-to-face meeting in 2013.

Terence Moore, writing for MLB.com, talked with Mr. Moore about the passing of former Negro Leaguer Monte Irvin.

Since the death of Monte Irvin on Monday at 96, nobody knows how many Negro Leagues players remain these days, but this is for sure: Their legacies will last forever, and the face of James “Red” Moore brightens whenever the subject is Irvin, baseball or just about anything else.

“Thankful to celebrate 99 years of life,” said Moore (no relation), telling his age this week with zeal from a nursing home in his native Atlanta.

Mr. Moore was interviewed by the Atlanta History Center on August 29, 2015, for an exhibit on Bush Mountain, on the southwest side of Atlanta where he grew up and first started playing baseball. Look for the exhibit in April 2016. The photo below shows Mr. Moore (middle row, far right) with fellow Black Crackers at Ponce de Leon Park.

Atlanta City Council member Michael Julian Bond honored living baseball greats Norman  F. “Geronimo” Lumpkin;  James “Red” Moore and Lawrence “Larry” Williams on September 15, 2014, at Atlanta City Hall. All honorees were members of the Negro Baseball Leagues. Mr. Moore’s proclamation read:

James “Red” Moore was born in Atlanta on November 18, 1916 and is recognized as one of the Negro Major League’s premier first basemen. He played for the Atlanta Black Crackers in 1935, 1938, and 1946-48

During Moore’s storied career, which was abbreviated by his military service, he played on three All-Star teams, three Second Half Championship teams and was selected to the 1938 Southern News Services All-American Negro League Baseball Team.

Pictured with the proclamations below are Mr. James “Red” Moore,  Larry Williams (Kansas City Monarchs) and Norman Lumpkin (Atlanta Black Crackers).

Check out this rare film discovered of the 1938 Black Crackers by the Atlanta History Center (news story by Channell 11). In one scene you can see James “Red” Moore posing with the team front and center.


from the Atlanta Hawks website…

As part of this year’s celebration of Black History Month, the Atlanta Hawks are honoring prominent African-American leaders during home games in February for their civic contributions, accomplishments and leadership. Beginning with the Hawks – Raptors game on Wednesday, February 2, the team will recognize individuals from the Atlanta area who have excelled in these areas during special in-game ceremonies.

The first honoree will be Red Moore, a former Negro League All-Star first baseman who played for the Atlanta Black Crackers, Newark Eagles and Baltimore Elite Giants. Moore, an Atlanta native, played professionally in the 1930’s and 1940’s and was known as one of the top defensive players of his time. While playing for Newark, he teamed with Ray Dandridge, Willie Wells and Dick Seay in what became known as the “Millions Dollar Infield.” After his playing days, Moore served in the army during World War II before working for Colonial Warehouse in Atlanta until his retirement.

Right after looking through the the net and finding solutions which are not powerful, I thought my entire life was gone.
