Great article.  It is impressive that an ORU player was selected as the #1 overall pick. Mike was awesome in the 1989 World Series too and willed the As to victory.

That was also the World Series that had a game postponed due to an earthquake at the stadium as the pregame was on live nationwide TV.

I remember Mike Moore in my English class.

He would ask me how I was doing and would talk, which I appreciated.

When I graduated from ORU I moved back to Pennsylvania and met a army recruiter on the day Moore was picked. He asked me where I went to college and I said "Oral Roberts U." Immediately, he said, do you know Michael Moore, he was the first round draft pick? I felt good about attending ORU at that moment!
