Career highlights and awards

John Herbert "Herbie" Moran (February 16, 1884 – September 21, 1954) was an American professional baseball outfielder. He played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Philadelphia Athletics, Boston Doves, Brooklyn Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds, and Boston Braves between 1908 and 1915.[1]

In 1914, Moran was a member of the Braves team that went from last place to first place in two months, becoming the first team to win a pennant after being in last place on the Fourth of July.[2] The team then went on to defeat Connie Mack's heavily favored Philadelphia Athletics in the 1914 World Series.
