Donnie Moore is a relief pitcher for California on the NES version of RBI. Like his teammate Doug Corbett, he is a part of the weak link in California's team - the bullpen. His fastball can be effective on occassion, but he offers next to nothing in terms of curve or breaking ball. This is one reasons why a popular strategy against California is to take and foul off a lot of pitches against starters and try to get into the bullpen.
