Childhood and education

Born February 17, 1967, in Wichita, Kansas, Moore grew up a Royals fan. He attended grade school in Lakewood, New York, but due to his father's job transfer went to junior high at Coolidge Jr. High and Moline High School in the Quad Cities where he led the Moline, Illinois Legion Post 246 baseball team to a 2nd-place finish in the 1984 Illinois State Legion Baseball Tournament and a berth in the National Tournament in Rapid City, South Dakota, where they faced Greg Olson (future Baltimore Orioles pitcher and one of the MLBs most prolific saves leader). Moore claims to have watched the 1985 World Series in Kansas City from I-70.[1] He played baseball at Garden City Community College before graduating from George Mason University in 1989, with an undergraduate degree in Physical Education and Health. Moore received a master's degree in Athletic Administration from George Mason in 1992, and served as an assistant baseball coach at George Mason from 1990 to 1994.

Administrative career

In 1994, Moore entered the business of Major League Baseball, joining the Atlanta Braves as a scout. He later served as an assistant director of scouting, assistant director of player development, and director of international scouting before his promotion in 2002 to director of player personnel development. He took over as Braves Assistant General Manager in August 2005. In November 2005, Moore interviewed with the Boston Red Sox for their GM opening, but withdrew his name from consideration after the first interview. Moore then was offered a job with the Kansas City Royals and took the job on June 8, 2006.[2]

On August 31, 2009 Moore's contract as general manager of the Royals was extended through 2014.[3] The Royals won the American League in 2014 and advanced to the World Series before losing to the San Francisco Giants in 7 games. In 2015, Moore's Royals captured the World Series against the New York Mets winning 4 games to 1 after a dominant season in which Kansas City posted the best record in the American League.

In June 2018, Moore generated backlash with comments he made about convicted child molester and Oregon State University pitching prospect Luke Heimlich, saying "I think the player has earned the opportunity to play professional baseball" [4]

2007 Kansas City Royals season

The 2007 Kansas City Royals season was the 39th season for the franchise, and their 37th at Kauffman Stadium. the season began with the team attempting to win the Central Division of the American League - a task not achieved since the division was formed in 1994.

In trying to improve on their 62–100 record in the 2006 season, the team avoided a fourth straight 100-loss season. Buddy Bell returned for his second and final full season as manager, while Dayton Moore began his first season as the team's general manager.

Anticipation surrounded the Royals' newfound approach to once again become a playoff contender with rebuilding the roster. Roster moves generated much interest in the Kansas City area, including the big-budget signing of starting pitcher Gil Meche, and the arrival of young, new talent—such as rookie third baseman Alex Gordon and designated hitter Billy Butler. The team's payroll for the 2007 season was increased to $67 million (22nd in the major leagues).
