In his sophomore year, Moses broke the 200-Hit mark (202) and had a career-high Batting Average of .345. Moses was fourteenth in MVP voting that year, and would be eleventh in 1937, the season that would be his best ever. Moses had 25 Home Runs, the first and only time he had double-digits in that statistic, and he also had personal bests in Runs Scored (113), Hits (208), Doubles (48) and RBIs (86). Moses was an All-Star this year, and batted .320. Moses did not approach that year again, but he still batted over .300 in the next four seasons.
The cash-strapped Athletics traded Moses to Detroit after the 1939 Season, but it was voided by Major League Baseball Commissioner, Kennesaw Mountain Landis. A year later, Philadelphia was able to trade him, this time to Detroit.
Moses returned to the Athletics in 1949, playing in a reserve role until he retired in 1951. With the A’s, Moses batted .307 with 1,316 Hits.
