Anselm Winn Moore (September 22, 1917 – October 29, 1993) was an American professional baseball player whose career spanned 1939–1942 and 1946–1953 and included a full season and 51 games played in Major League Baseball for the 1946 Detroit Tigers. An outfielder, Moore batted left-handed, threw right-handed, stood 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 m) tall and weighed 190 pounds (86 kg). The native of Delhi, Louisiana, missed the 1943–1945 seasons while serving in the European Theater of Operations for the United States Army during World War II.[1]

During his season with the 1946 Tigers, who finished second in the American League, Moore hit .209 with 28 hits, 16 , eight runs batted in and one home run in 134 career at bats. He played 17 games in left field and 15 in right field. His lone homer, a solo shot, came off knuckleball pitcher Roger Wolff of the Washington Senators on May 14 at Briggs Stadium — representing the Tigers' only run in a 15–1 rout.[2]

Moore died at age 76 in Pearl, Mississippi.
