Ready For Moore

June 22, 2014, 11:03 PM

Ready For Moore
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Ben Moore is one of the most decorated pitchers in team history. He earned back-to-back American Association Pitcher of the Year honors in 2010 and 2011, and currently holds the league career records for wins with 53, and strikeouts with 653. What is the secret to his success with the birds? Not being afraid to make adjustments.

“What I’ve started doing in maybe the last 6 years, is that I look at the hitter and say what can't he do, and then I’m able to throw that pitch. I’m able to throw three pitches for strikes. If he can’t hit a fastball in, then that’s what I’m going to throw,” said Moore.

An 11-year veteran, Moore began his professional career signing as an undrafted free agent with the New York Yankees. After 10 season in independent ball, and seven with the canaries, Moore says that the key to his longevity in professional baseball boils down to his sounding cast.

“It’s Mike and Steve. The manager and pitching coach. They create an environment where they know me and they know how I pitch and they let me do what I need to do get ready. I just feel really comfortable here,” said Moore.

After a complete-game shutout last Sunday, Moore looks comfy. He improved to 4-1 with a 2.76 ERA in the 2014 campaign, and is also the reigning American Association Pitcher of the Week. Moore is currently second in the league with 45 strikeouts, and if you ask his skipper, his dominance stems from his ability to grow as individual.

“Well maturity and just learning more about himself for being able to pitch as who he is not trying to do too much or too little, but just being the pitcher that he is,” said Steve Shirley.

The birds currently sit at 13 and 22 on the year, but have won 7 of the last 9, and look to be turning the corner. Moore, who pitches every five starts, is proud of the individual accomplishment and accolades, but that’s not why he foots the rubber every five day. There still more to accomplish from the canaries ace.

“I just want to win. It sounds cliché but I’ve been lucky enough to win five championships and I’ll never forget those championships and the guys on those teams. That’s what I’m still playing for. That’s why I’m still playing,” said Moore.
