0 ejections?  He either knew how well to walk the line before getting ejected or he didn't even try.

It certainly shows a lack of grit.

when you are running Europe's largest underground criminal enterprise, you have to keep a low profile at the games.

He famously got into a fist fight with Ty Cobb under the stands, but who didn't?

On Memorial Day in 1932, Moriarty worked behind the plate for a Cleveland Indians home game against the White Sox. When several Chicago players took exception to his calls, he challenged them to settle the dispute under the stands of League Park after the game. Pitcher Milt Gaston took him on first but Moriarty knocked him flat, breaking his hand. Several White Sox, including manager Lew Fonseca and catcher and future AL umpire Charlie Berry, took him on in turn. The next day, AL president Will Harridge issued numerous fines and a 10-day suspension for Gaston.[1]

It is reported that once while Moriarty was umpiring, none other than Babe Ruth stepped out of the batter's box and asked Moriarty to spell his last name. When he did so, Ruth reportedly replied, "Just as I thought; only one I."

He was a man of good birth and excellent education, endowed by nature with a phenomenal mathematical faculty and a most brilliant career before him.  You would think he would have made a better umpire.

Rogers/WCastro & Reyes combine for a 1-0 lead.

That much heavy lifting for a SF?

Willi can't come up with the grounder, Cisnero had a chance to get the lead runner, can't pick up the bad bunt cleanly. Whether it's the World Series of a meaningless game, the Tigers find pitchers that can't field!
