Euel "Monk" Moore
1908 - 1989

Euel "Monk" Moore, a former major league pitcher, was posthumously inducted into the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame in May, 1989.

He began his pitching career in the minor leagues in 1927, and by 1933 had established himself as a world-class pitcher and Texas League workhorse, regularly pitching 300 innings a season, always with a sterling record. He began his major league career with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1934, but his career was cut short due to an injury sustained in spring training in 1935.

After his baseball career, Moore joined the U.S. Army in 1942 and served in World War II. After his discharged from the military, he served as a state game ranger for 27 years in the Tishomingo district.

Because Monk always exhibited the indomitable Chickasaw spirit, clippings and memorabilia of his career can be viewed at the Chickasaw Council House Museum in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.
