Patrick Joseph Moran (February 7, 1876March 7, 1924) was an American catcher and manager in Major League Baseball. As a manager, he led two teams to their first-ever modern-era National League championships: the 1915 Philadelphia Phillies and the 1919 Cincinnati Reds.

A native of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, Moran played 819 games over 14 National League seasons for the Boston Braves (1901-05), Chicago Cubs (1906-09) and Phillies (1910-14). A righthanded hitter, he batted .235 with 18 home runs, and after 1904 he did not appear in more than 100 games in a season. However, as a second-string catcher, Moran became a student of the game and especially of pitching. In 1913-14, he was a player-coach and guided by his support and counsel, Phillies righthander Grover Cleveland Alexander developed into one of the greatest pitchers of all time.

In 1915 Moran was promoted to manager of the Phillies. The club had finished sixth in 1914 and was plagued by defections (and threatened defections) to the outlaw Federal League. Moran swung some astute trades and – led by Alexander’s 31 wins and the slugging of right fielder Gavvy Cravath – the Phils improved by 17 games and won their first NL pennant. In the 1915 World Series, they were defeated four games to one by the Boston Red Sox. See also: 1913 in sports, 1915 in sports and the list of years in sports.

Concurrently, there was a job opening in Cincinnati, where manager Christy Mathewson, the former pitching great, had been stricken with tuberculosis from a poison gas attack during his wartime service in France.

The 1919 World Series, won by Cincinnati five games to three, should have been Moran’s crowning accomplishment. But when it was charged that eight key members of the American League champion Chicago White Sox had conspired with gamblers to "throw" the series – the infamous Black Sox Scandal – the Reds' achievement was somehow tarnished. (The eight players were acquitted in a controversial 1920 trial but were nonetheless expelled from baseball.)

Moran remained at the helm in Cincinnati during the early 1920s. Apart from a poor 1921 campaign, the Reds fielded contending ballclubs but did not return to the World Series. The club finished second in 1922 and 1923. During the 1923-24 off-season at his Fitchburg home, Moran became ill. He reported to the Reds' training camp in Orlando, Florida, but his condition worsened and he died there at the age of 48. The cause of death was listed as Bright's Disease, a kidney ailment, but some baseball historians ascribe Moran's fatal illness to alcoholism.
