Ambrose Joseph "Amby" Moran
Birth: Apr. 3, 1895
Greater Winnipeg
Manitoba, Canada
Death: Apr. 8, 1958
North Vancouver
Greater Vancouver Regional District
British Columbia, Canada

Professional Hockey Player. He began as a hockey player in Manitoba in Winnipeg and Brandon before turning professional in 1921. He then played for the Regina Capitals (1921 to 24), Vancouver Maroons (1924 to 1926), Moose Jaw Maroons and New Haven Eagles (1926 to 1927). 1926 saw Moran made his National Hockey League debut with the Montreal Canadiens. He played for the Chicago Blackhawks (1927 to 1928) before ending his playing career in the American Hockey Association. It was the AHA that started Moran as a referee. Before long he added baseball to his resume and found an outlet for his colorful nature. Umpiring in the Minor Leagues, he would beat his chest and showboat between innings. Unfortunately, the downside was Moran's growing alcoholism which he finally overcame in 1948. It had seen him being bounced from team to team, and had cost him the opportunity to work at a major league umpiring job. Minor Leagues did continue to seek Amby Moran's umpiring expertise years after he sobered up and he devoted his remaining time to helping those who called. (bio by: 1weasel)
