James "Red" Moore

Atlanta Sports Hall of Famer James “Red” Moore, 97, was a first baseman of the Atlanta Black Crackers, Baltimore Elite Giants and the Newark Eagles. In 1938, he was an instrumental part of Atlanta Black Crackers’ only shot at the Negro American League title. That same year, he was selected to play in the 1938 East-West All-Star classic, but was unable to compete due to an ankle injury. (Photo: Rich Pilling/MLB Photos via Getty Images)
