[edit] Biographical Information

Joe Moffett was one of the earliest players from West Virginia to come to the majors. Although he was younger than his brother Sam Moffett, he made his debut a few days before his brother did.

Moffett was on the 1884 Toledo Blue Stockings, where he was a teammate of Fleet Walker and Welday Walker. He was the same age as Welday. While his .201 average was unimpressive the team average was .231 and several players hit under .200.

He was primarily a first baseman, at the time a defensive position, and his fielding percentage was better than that of Chappy Lane, who played the most at first base that season.
