Dayton Moore | Kansas City Royals

DaytonMoore-minDayton Moore 
General Manager, KC Royals

Dayton Moore is in his 11th full season with the Kansas City Royals, being named Senior Vice President-Baseball Operations/General Manager on May 30, 2006. He officially assumed his duties, becoming the sixth general manager in franchise history, on June 8, 2006.

From day one, the goal Moore set out to accomplish was bringing a World Championship back to Kansas City, a dream that was brought to fruition in 2015. The Royals bested the New York Mets in five games to win the franchise's first World Series championship in 30 years. The club became just the fourth since 2000 to reach the Fall Classic in back-to-back seasons after falling to the San Francisco Giants in the 2014 World Series.

Keeping homegrown talent has been key to the Royals' success as half of KC's 2015 postseason roster played at least one full season in the club's minor league system, while 11 of those players were either drafted by the Royals or signed as non-drafted free agents. Since joining the franchise in 2006, Moore and his staff have tirelessly worked to build a consistently strong farm system that was rated by Baseball America, MLB.com and ESPN.com as the best in baseball in 2011. The entire operation was honored in 2014 as the 'Organization of the Year' by Baseball America, marking just the second time the franchise has won since the publication debuted the award in 1982.

Moore's tenure in Kansas City has been one of the most successful runs in franchise history as the Royals have boasted 12 Rawlings Gold Glove Awards, 24 All-Star Game selections, two Louisville Silver Sluggers and a Cy Young Award winner in his first 11 seasons. Over the past three seasons, the Royals have won the third-most games (265) in the American League, while their .545 winning percentage is tied for sixth-highest in the Majors in that span.

A leader in the Kansas City community, Moore is a regular speaker at numerous community events each year. In 2013, Moore started the "C" You In the Major Leagues Foundation. It was created to support youth baseball, education, families in crisis and faith-based programs and organizations.

Moore was a member of the Board of Directors of the NAIA's Champions of Character program from 2007-10. The program instills an understanding of character values in sport and provides practical tools for student-athletes, coaches and parents to use in modeling exemplary character traits. Following the 2014 season, Moore was named the Kansan of the Year by the Native Sons and Daughters of Kansas, elected to the Kansas Baseball Hall of Fame and tabbed the Alumnus of the Year at George Mason University. He was also named the "Executive of the Year" by the Kansas City Sports Commission.

Moore and his wife, Marianne, are proud to be involved with the City Union Mission of Kansas City including their service as co-chairs of the Women Who've Changed the Heart of the City banquet in 2011 and 2012.

Moore graduated from George Mason in 1989 with a degree in physical education and health. Three years later, he earned his master's degree in athletic administration from GMU. He and his wife, Marianne, reside in Leawood, Kan., and have two daughters, Ashley and Avery, and a son, Robert.
