As a hitter, he hit .169 lifetime, for teams that hit .237 to .247 overall.

As a position player, he appeared 50 times in the outfield and a few times in the infield.

Sam Moffett and Jack Glasscock were both born in Wheeling, WV in 1857. He was the brother of Joe Moffett.

"Pitcher Sam Moffett is reported to have struck 'pay-dirt'. Before he joined the Hoosier team, season before last, he had sunk every dollar he had in a mine near Butte City, Montana. Last year he returned to his mine and last winter struck a lead which yielded him $40,000." - from Sporting Life, April 3, 1889, about Sam Moffett, whose pro ball career seems to have ended in 1888
