Jackie Spencer Moore (born February 19, 1939, in Jay, Florida) is a coach for the Texas Rangers (currently on his fifth different stint with the club) and a former manager of the Oakland Athletics of Major League Baseball. He also played one season in the majors as a catcher for the Detroit Tigers.

Playing, coaching & managing career

Although he had a very brief career as a major league player — he batted only .094 in 53 at bats as a catcher for the 1965 Detroit Tigers — Moore has spent almost 30 years at the MLB level as a coach with the Milwaukee Brewers (1970-72), Texas Rangers (1973-74; 1975-76; 1980; 1993-94; 2009), Toronto Blue Jays (1977-79), Oakland Athletics (1981-84), Montréal Expos (1987-89), Cincinnati Reds (1990-92), Colorado Rockies (1996-98) and Houston Astros (2008).

Moore was promoted to manager of the Athletics on May 24, 1984, succeeding Steve Boros. He managed Oakland for 353 games—the balance of 1984, all of 1985, and 73 games into 1986—before he was fired in favor of Tony La Russa on June 26, 1986. His career managing record was 163-190 (.462).

He also managed Texas' Double-A farm team, the Pittsfield Rangers of the Eastern League, for the first half of the 1975 season. In 2000, Moore was appointed the first manager in the history of the Round Rock Express, owned by a syndicate that includes Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan. He managed the Astro affiliate for eight full seasons, during which time the Express played in the Double-A Texas League (2000-04) and the Triple-A Pacific Coast League (2005-07).

On September 30, 2007, he was named the Astros bench coach for the 2008 season by manager Cecil Cooper. Moore was Cooper's first manager in professional baseball, with the 1968 Jamestown Falcons, then the Boston Red Sox' affiliate in the Short Season Class A New York-Penn League. On October 22, 2008 Moore was named bench coach for the Texas Rangers — reuniting him with Ryan, who is president of the Rangers, and marking his fifth different term as a coach with the club, dating back to 1973.
