Dayton Moore is in his 14th full season with the Kansas City Royals in 2020 after 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 in 30 years. The club became just the fourth since 1997 to reach the World Series in back-to-back seasons after falling to the San Francisco Giants in the 2014 Fall Classic.
